Research and design platform Livable has created a wearable creation to increase awareness of the need for physical distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Created to avoid physical interactions and spend more time over alternative solutions. If we do need to get out in the physical world, keep your distance and connect with positive vibrations surrounding you.
It serves as a physical reference to the meaning of a healthy distance, interpreted both in the physical and spiritual world.Because it is not about being cold and distant, it is about being warm and present to what is best for everyone in the picture. The risk of infecting others is not the way to help.
Made by bending, weaving and shaping warm rattan materials, a non-timber alternative.
‘Well-distance-being’ is created for the United Nations Global Call Out To Creatives – help stop the spread of COVID-19. It highlights the need for members of the public to keep their distance from each other in order to slow the spread of the virus.
Since our start in 2012 Livable has been exploring impact on people, society and environment concerning design and it’s future.
In 2020 we launch our LIVABLE® Platform:A design and research Platform with open calls, dialogues and interventions in Craft, Arts & Design.
Create for a cause not applause.
