Proxemics is the study of set measurable distances between people as they interact.

I wanted to design a piece of furniture that would subliminally encourage sociable behavior. I did this by affecting a few different factors in order to increase the chances of it.

The three levels and shapes of the tops helps encourage social behaviour within a space and controls the size of groups

The study of proxemics was used to gauge the average distance needed for personal space to ensure the user would feel comfortable

The 3 surfaces rotate so can be used in different configurations depending on the size of the social engagement
