celine history

audience :
modern working women

Work is different now, not only do we not wear the same clothing to work, we do not even need to go to the office necessarily. 

With the advance of technology, we are able to work comfortably at home and remain the connectivity with our partners & collaborators.

status quo

Now, we work all the time. We wake up and the first thing we do is check our phones, to stay updated with everything.

We do this through out the day until at night , we have to force ourselves to put our phones away so we can have a good night of sleep.

Thats why we need a home furniture that accompany us, a productive tool that help us with work, something beautiful that we would like to keep at home.

I started off by sketching forms that are more on the bulkier side of the spectrum. Then considering how may the status be shown  through lighting without interupting the users and people around.
