Tobi Schneidler, RemoteHome

What I most like about the whole RemoteHome project is that it is a very personal kinetic tangible experience. I love the idea that sitting on furniture in one country could influence the shape of furniture in another. Tobi Schneidler and other members of SmartStudio together explore initeractivity and its impact on spatial environments.


The RemoteHome is a flat share that will exist in two distant cities at the same time: London and Berlin. Both spaces are electronically connected through the Internet, to turn furniture and architectural elements into tangible and sensual means of communication. Sensory and kinetic devices, as well as an interactive light installation allow for the exchange between this remotely living group of friends. A mobile wireless artefact, in the shape of a transforming interactive bag, can be taken on journeys to stay emotionally in touch with the RemoteHome.


RemoteHome was last exhibited at the Science Museum London + Raumlabor Berlin May 2003
