Everyday, most of us go to work in an office, where we sit in a shared space, while working on individual projects. We communicate mostly online, screens in front our faces, despite working towards the same common goal.
A Play of Dependencies is meant to help foster a healthy work environment, communication, and in-person interaction. Designed by Maya Pindeus and Johanna Pichlbauer, this lamp is actually a set of three table lamps that encourage engagement and interaction between coworkers.
It is operated by two people, and needs either Agreement, Competition, or Cooperation to close off the electric circuit and make the lamps light up. A classic example of a group effort.
