When you stroke this soft surface, the interaction causes a range of sounds, that can be explored throughout the fabric. Through collaboration, multiple participants together create a symphony, treating the fabric as their orchestra.

The music you hear are the instruments of a string quarted Zapp4, playing together with Jan Bang.

Tactile Orchestra has been exhibited in Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City (US) and Museum Trapholt in Kolding, Denmark.

Receiving positive feedback from the healthcare industry, the installation now forms the basic principle behind Kozie, a family of multi-sensory objects that have been designed specifically for elderly suffering from dementia.
