‘The human need to create processes/ceremonies and rituals out of everyday interactions with inanimate objects is not, usually, part of a designer’s R&D ethos. Many of our contemporary products have been designed with little or no thought about how to encourage or enhance the user interaction.'

‘We humans need to re-connect to our landscapes’
