Gabriel Hafner – La vie est une pause
Both for the person who dares to take a quick nap and for the envious colleague who would also like a little shuteye, dozing off at the office is often seen in a negative light. The need to hide from the gaze of others to take a nap was the starting point of this project which concludes my years of study at ECAL.
This project features a deckchair equipped with textile sails that allows the user to withdraw for a nap. Intended for semi-public spaces such as schools, open spaces and libraries, this second space offers the user a feeling of intimacy, without isolating the person completely from his or her surroundings.
