Ribbon Room is a design for a temporary hotel room sitting on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall which acts as a catalyst for social performance. As it observes the most exciting events along South Bank with the use of motion sensors, it twists and unfurls its interactive fabric skin to reveal the array of visual delights offered by London to its guests.
The Ribbon Room Installation prototype reveals the mass-customised fabric skin. As sensors detect activity, the skin is peeled open by motors to create temporary vistas. This offers participants a constantly evolving view to direct their gaze towards the event that has become the focus of the interaction. Ribbon Room demonstrates how an interactive system could benefit from the developments of parametric design and mass customisation capabilities inherent in the digital design and fabrication process.
