Communication Tools is an exhibition hall designed by Acts and Pathway’s for the Suzhou International Design Week 2018. We began the creative process by reflecting on the concept of “communication”. We decided to anthropomorphize the works of the exhibition by switching their usual passive position of “being seen” into the role of actively “communicating” with the audience.
To achieve our goal we designed a set of booths in the form of chairs to transform the usual act of “looking” by the audience into a “face-to-face” form of “communication” with the exhibited works. Sitting down, the audience is able to interpret the artist’s intention in the work, this experience creates interest and reifies the theme of the exhibition.
