How can the sensory experience of bamboo be utilized for mental well-being in the future living environment?

Bamboo Future aims to bring human and material relations into closer alignment in the future. By studying materials that have a desirable connection in modern people’s lifestyles and natural environments. The aim was to create a subtle atmosphere that arouses serenity from the use of textures and samples. It also looks to present and demonstrate new ways of what the material can perform naturally.

Bamboo Future looks to invoke an experience that would challenge the predetermined expectations of its standardisation. “Assembly” and “Repetition” are two key elements that present this project and the functions within it, this redefines the relationship between material future and manufacture.
