Sociologists are raising concerned questions about the fact that people spend less time together physically and warning that technology is creating a parallel world distancing us from our humanity.
Miaja Design Group will create a room which will try to challenge the common belief that social interaction is impaired due to the technological devices that openly or insidiously invade our lives.
The studio will endeavour to create an environment that is socially flex-able. A guest room that will encourage people to gather and share experiences that cross the boundaries between Dream and Reality.
