Located offshore Dubai,  the Blue Crystal integrates a tracking system capable of identifying the footprints of the visitors, in specific areas, enabling them to leave their mark on the surroundings by projecting the footprints on the ground behind them. As soon as the dusk become evident on the horizon, the structure transforms into a splendid illumination, which keeps changing after each hour like a giant timepiece, giving a magnificent view to the spectators on the mainland. The Blue Crystal is adorned with interactive tables that integrating a watery surface to let the guests use an interface to play with sound waves.

Colour Research

Walltherapy began in April 2003 and was a collaboration between Rachel Wingfield and flour aiming to bring together areas of design with neuroscience and colour science. This is essentially a research project aimed at developing a new design methodology for bespoke, end-user created designs that can have a positive effect on their environment.

Walltherapy enables everyone to create their own highly individual personal environment from their psychophysically determined colour preferences to suit and possibly enhance people’s sense of well-being. It is well established in scientific literature that ambient colour, light and texture can affect mood and behaviour this is why a conventional decorative surface, such as wallpaper has been chosen as the interface for this experiment.
