There are quite a few things that make this project unique and interesting. At first sight it seems like many other installations set in a space but it is far more. What makes it unique is the thinking process behind it that gave life to the lines. The student team from Shandong Jianzhu University studied human movement and their interaction with objects in the space; walking through, leaning on, or just sitting. This interaction helped direct the flow, openings and direction of the cube. The curvilinear and fluidity the cube has in inspired from the womb as the group feels that helps inspire a soft and gentle space that will help people relax and unwind.

The cube is more than a space to pass or sit in, it has interactive features to it as well. In the project’s first page, an ipod could be hooked to the cube and LED lights on the cube would respond to the rhythms creating a dynamic visual interaction between the cube and users. In a later phase, motion sensors were installed and the LED lit up as someone approached them, when someone was close enough the microphone units will collect audio signals around the cube, once detected the LEDs give a gradient change.
