koselig

 

Koselig is an interactive softgood built with the purpose of bringing physical interactions back into long distance relationships. 

 

The Team

Created alongside two other industrial designers passionate about relationships in a digital age, we built our garment to bring back the warm interactions and physical touches indicative of being with a loved one.

 

My Role

Originally tasked with the goal to make something "playful",  I challenged the team to think of a concept beyond play targeted at young children. I handled the user interviews and surveys critical for our inspiration and research, along with all 2D deliverables including photography and video


origins

Koselig /koosh-lee/ Norwegian

The sensation of comfort and inner warmth you feel when returning to a familiar place; the tranquility of sitting with friends around a campfire; the overwhelming happiness you feel when you embrace a loved one.  

about

Built as a set of two, Koselig's users can send their lover's paired garment a "nudge” (a small vibration in the shoulder of their partner’s garment) or make a call in a more pleasant and intimate environment by interacting with the hood.
