daily tous les jours presents Duetti: Musical Furniture at 5vie

 

Multidisciplinary practice Daily tous les jours brings their latest experiments in movement, music, and collaboration with Duetti: Musical Furniture. Presented as part of 5Vie Network’s Unlimited Design Orchestra, Duetti uses interactivity to bring social and therapeutic insights to furniture design. Encouraging impromptu compositions, the project features two urban archetypes with an interactive twist: a bench that rocks and plays soothing music and a bollard that transforms the act of walking into dancing. Played by the public as they move, synchronized motions create harmonies, inspiring collaboration. At night, integrated lights further mesmerize visitors of Milan Design Week 2024.

an ode to the spirit of play, cooperation, and creativity

 

Founded in 2010 by Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat, Daily tous les jours leads an emergent field of practice that combines interactive art, storytelling, performance, and urban design to reinvent living together in the 21st century. The team works in partnership with municipalities, public realm programmers, and private sector clients to create unexpected experiences that bring strangers together in a spirit of play, cooperation, and creativity. Synchronous activity, according to different studies, strengthens social attachment and empathy among a group well beyond the moment of coming together. The harmonies of Duetti at 5Vie respond to the direction of movements, lines being played and the rhythms of concerted actions.

a bench and a bollard with an interactive twist

 

Duetti is composed of two musical furniture playable by the public. The first part features a sculptural interactive, rocking bench. When people sit and push it to rock or spin, music and light animations are triggered through motion detection, merging analog and digital movements. The bench’s sounds are recordings of human voices, offering an interplay of tension and release. Part of the Daily tous les jours’ Daydreamer series, Duetti uses rocking, known to induce a state of daydreaming, reducing stress and anxiety. An edition of the studio’s Musical Lines series, the second part of Duetti is an interactive bollard, with integrated lights, encircled by line insets on the ground. Touching the lines—whether with a foot or a wheel—triggers its own set of voice harmonies. With increasing movement and simultaneous exploration, compositions emerge, with musical flourishes unlocked through deeper cooperation.
