Inspiration and Context

Our story begins with a team of three students. We went searching to find the answer to the question, what object do people cherish the most in their home? We found two insights - people love their bed and people miss their family when they are alone.  How could we enhance the peace that being in bed evokes? How could we bring our families into our lonely homes?

Our designer had a clear vision to elicit these feelings using subtle touches. She didn't want to overpower the person. That's when the right idea clicked - breathing. When we lie next to our spouse, we can feel their breathing. It's the subtle movements of their chest that tell us they're next to us. It's the warmth of their body. 

Our object would communicate the presence of another by simulating breathing. We would use heat, vibration, and soft light. We named our idea, "Rest Assured".
