Thinking/Creating with Active Materials

Exhibition on our research techniques

In December 2013 Enactive Environments exhibited its research for the first time at the OCT-LOFT Design festival 2013 in Shenzhen, China.


We are happy to be chosen together with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts to represent Swiss design research at the OCT-LOFT Design festival 2013. Our exhibit focuses on our research process and methodology, giving us the opportunity to share our work with China’s creative industry and research institutions and to connect with the other exhibitors, including Fraunhofer Institute Berlin and Sandberg Institute Amsterdam. Our work will also be shared through an upcoming publication of the eight exhibitors design research. The publication contains the most detailed coverage of the Enactive Environments project to date, and will be available in English and Chinese in the coming weeks.

The OCT-LOFT is a former industry area of the rapidly growing Shenzhen city, just north of Hong Kong. The OCT-LOFT is a designated area for creative business, Shenzhen’s base for “creativity, design and art.”
