Lucia Bajankova

I am a designer of many disciplines with a background in fine arts. I use my knowledge of culture and history to improve current design issues as well as attempting to incorporate art in my projects. Coming from a small Slovakian family, I have gained practical skills in Problem-solving and then being able to incorporate these skills in more complex issues. I tend to focus both on projects supported by scientific research and data, as well as purely artistic approached projects.

Design for pain and feeling:

Hospitals are purpose-built buildings for healing and recovery. However, the user is most of the time was forgotten and overlooked, leaving the environment cold and user non-friendly. I aim to design a healing space by attempting to create an isolated area in the open space of the atrium gallery, possibly using a tent. The combination of TV screens with calming series, headphones with a selection of ambient and meditation music. I will test out the use of aroma diffuser. There should be an option for both sitting and lying down as well as a selection of supporting cushions and blankets to achieve the highest comfort. The participants can choose any category, mix and match them or simply eliminate most, or all, of them to create a personalised experience. This will map my customer journey and support my claim about individual preferences of the customer.

Project Statement: 

Hospitals are purpose-built buildings for healing and recovery. However, the user is most of the time was forgotten and overlooked, leaving the environment cold and user non-friendly. I aim to design a healing space by attempting to create an isolated area in the open space of the atrium gallery, possibly using a tent.

The combination of TV screens with calming series, headphones with a selection of ambient and meditation music. I will test out the use of aroma diffuser.

The participants can choose any category, mix and match them or simply eliminate most of them or all of them to create a personalised experience. This will map my customer journey and support my claim about individual preferences of the customer.

 

Deliverables:

As I said I want to create a space within a space. Using tend to create almost a den-like feeling. I want the user to be able to use various media such as different music (needing headphones with an iPod or tablet) projector for visual stimuli or a screen for them to be able to change what they see. I would like them to have a comfortable armchair or maybe a slouch bag for them to find a comfortable position, blankets and cushions if needed.

Because space is based on the principle of choice and can be very overwhelming when containing every possible option, I would like to find a sorting system (maybe shelves) that will neutralise the whole space and only will be given personality when the items are taken out from the shelves (aka blankets… etc) And last but not least I will need multiple plugs to plug in the rest of electronics which I will be bringing along.

– Website (I guess it will be better to film someone using the website rather than just showing

the website on a computer screen).

– A video (around 45 seconds long)… Audio will be needed.

– A booklet
