Description
Pleasure is multi-sensory. Nonetheless, the overwhelming majority of existing products – LELO's included – rely on just two: SIGHT and TOUCH.
Now it's time to extend the possibilities of pleasure by invoking the sensation through other, overlooked senses like SMELL, SOUND and TASTE.
We want you to convey the vibrancy of pleasure through design, exploring all facets of materials, the possibilities of technology, and what it really means to experience pleasure.
Sexual pleasure is just one of our areas of expertise and one that we're especially proud of, but what other possibilities are there? What other forms of happiness can you create?
Applicants are asked to give a personal interpretation of pleasure that pushes sensory boundaries of all kinds. You should create objects, accessories and experiences to enhance the possibility of pleasure in everyday life. It's time to make creative use of neglected or overlooked ideas of pleasure – positive design for positive experiences!
