The design was an award winning entry in an International design competition "In quest of spiritual comfort" organized by 'Japan Design Foundation', Osaka.
Here, very simple but effective changes in the quality of space, experienced during a person's slow walk, act as catalysts in relaxing and opening up one's mind.
The inward introspective movement relaxes and quiets the mind- a meditative pause at the center happens- then the outward centrifugal movement gradually opens the relaxed mind back in action. This design seeks a state of spiritual comfort in a dynamic balance between these forces- as a live happening and not a stagnant event.
