Smartphone Companions, 2018 – 2020

A design research project around the impact of smartphones on our well-being. We were looking for alternative ways of interacting with the information we consume through the smartphone. This often manifested itself in functional extensions for the phone, as objects to stimulate thought and discussion.

Together with students of three different programs, we developed a set of speculative tools that aim to help moderate smartphone consumption.

Made together with Alain Bellet and Lison Christe at ECAL Research & Development.
