Le Chêne, Cuvry

[ context ]

The Residence Le Chêne hosts 18 residents developing a neurogenerative and hereditary disease called Huntington disease. Symptoms of this disease are cognitive, motor and mood disorders.

The carriers of Huntington disease have difficulties to manage saturated environments placing them in “cognitive overflow” situation. Isolating themselves to avoid these problematic situations is a solution sometimes used by patients. The purpose is to conceive a relaxing and personalized object which could be used at any moment by the patient.The conceived object plays a personalized soundtrack “absorbent” which mitigates external informations. The sound dissemination system is enclosed in a foam envelope in order to be comfortable to handle and resistant to falls.
