  • During the research phase of this project the idea of “time as a luxury” came to be a main theme. After trying to find ways to give people more time I finally ended up with the idea of removing (connected) time instead since luxury is often more about the things you remove than the things you add.
  • The idea is that as soon as you leave work, or just want a break you put your phone in the inner pocket of the jacket and you terminate all connectivity. By using the pocket as an off switch you make mobile communication a bit more tangible, there is something very satisfactory about being angry and throwing your phone in your pocket to end a call.
  • By using the principles of a Faraday’s cage the pocket is effectively blocking all radio frequency waves. An NFC chip embedded in the fabric turns of the phones antenna to save you that precious battery time.
