‘drop series’ by olivia decaris and hina thibaud for studio DuHO image © studio DuHO

designers olivia decaris and hina thibaud, founders of french design studio DuHO, created ‘social drop’, a series that is both a cocoon-like environment and a lamp. whether dining, working or sleeping, the lamp gives users the choice to release the fabric panel, putting another layer between them and the outside. although this changes the visual experience of the user, the sound is also affected, giving the sense of private, internal space. used in a restaurant or office, the capsule can change the function, as well as the architectural experience of the user.
