koselig

 

Koselig is an interactive garment built with the purpose of bringing physical interactions back into relationships separated by distance. Koselig is an idea created after conducting surveys and interviews with couples in long distance relationships,  which identified that digital interactions lacked the warmth of tangible touch. 

 

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. 

Designed with Praew Sunstiavaporn and Lauren Zemering
