Touch collection features a series of design exploring the sense of touch. I have always been very intrigued by the physical and emotional feedback the sense of touch evokes in all living beings. It is this interest which prompted me to create a series of art jewelries, with different materials and techniques, which explores and promotes the intimate interaction and sensory experience between the user and the design. “The sense of touch is tied to our body’s largest organ: the skin. Here, hormones and neurotransmitters such as serotonin can create feelings of happiness and security. A soft and warm couch embraces you whereas the hardness of a stainless steel bench may leave you feeling cold. Marieke Sonneveld, connected with the Faculty of Industrial Design at Delft University of Technology, has investigated this sense and found that through touch, materials and products develop relationships with their users. Safe, comfortable, energetic, annoying and hostile are all feelings that can be projected onto materials as a result of how they are perceived by one’s sense of touch.” –Source from material.nl
