ACTIVE FURNITURE
Is a collection of three objects which try to keep users physically active by creating new relationships object-user-user-object.
These new relationships are not unidirectional anymore – relationships in which users are the ones who demand from the object and the object obeys.
The pieces of furniture in this collection do anything but facilitate what users want. They force users to perform a physical action in order to make them function. These actions keep users active.
Trying to find a way around the system also implies an effort. In this case, however, it implies a physiological effort.

Table
This working desk has the drawers opposite to the users. Every time users need to access the drawers, they are forced to stand up and walk to get what they need from the drawers.
