Design Students Combine Instruments with Furniture

Piet Zwart Institute Auscultable by Iulia Circei and Sina Steiner dezeen ss 2

Dezeen has a piece about a recent project done by the students at the Piet Zwart Institute in the Netherlands. The design series focuses on the role of the often overlooked sounds produced in domestic settings.

Students from the Piet Zwart Institute created a series of interactive objects exploring sound in a domestic context for their Instruments Reimaging the Music Room exhibition in Milan last month (+ slideshow).

Taking the often unnoticed background noise of the home as a starting point, designers from the Master Interior Architecture and Retail Design (MIARD) program at the Piet Zwart Institute in the Netherlands created the exhibition, entitled Instruments Reimaging the Music Room, in the Ventura Lambrate district of Milan.

The exhibition explored the theme of incidental soundscapes and the role of music in the home. The result is a series of objects with both domestic functions and audio output.

“Our collection of five mechanisms is designed to clean details of the house that are often neglected,” said Fotiadou. “The project was inspired by the sounds created by the domestic ritual of cleaning and the repetitive frictions involved. The project refers to the humorous aspects of obsession.”
