lee sanghyeok: listen to your hands

berlin-based korean designer lee sanghyeok presented his project ‘listen to your hands’ at DMY berlin 2012. the desk investigates how we make relationships with inanimate things in our domestic space. the table demonstrates how our tactile senses can cause us to achieve intimate connections between furniture within our surroundings. any time one drawer is closed, it causes another to open simultaneously as if the compartments are in conversation with one another. this allows the user to act with intention, ultimately paying attention to their hand interaction.
