Interdependence

This is an exploration of how a personal object transforms when recreated for use by two or more people. Inspired by a story of group period among roommates, this project developed a sanitary napkin into a couch for up to four users. The curvature of the seat is designed to encourage participants to support each other, both physically and throughout the hard feelings caused by premenstrual syndrome.
