“We live surrounded by objects. They stand still in the corner of the room. But what if we could interact with them?” asked Juno Jeon, and created a cabinet that reacts to peoples’ action.

“I use ordinary behavior of using furniture as a trigger which makes the furniture alive. In this way, people can feel the interaction very naturally.”Pull me to life‘ investigates how we can communicate with everyday objects. Thinking of a feature that could make an ordinary routine special, Juno Jeon created a cabinet that, being pulled, gradually changes its color while showing a playful movement. The cabinet doesn’t include any digital technology, though – it’s all analogue. As Jeon explains, “analogue interaction is able to give a stronger emotion than digital.”

So how does it work? Basically, a wide brush is connected to the inner part of the drawer. While being either pulled or pushed, the brushes hit those parts of there drawer that are on its surface and flip them over. The Eindhoven-based designer explains: “I didn’t want to force people to interact with my furniture. So I used ordinary behavior of using furniture as a trigger which makes the furniture alive. In this way, people can feel the interaction very naturally.”
