The Fresh Living Lab
SPACE10 set out to explore how design can be used to create a healthier, more sustainable future by enlisting the help of bright, innovative designers from around the world. The Fresh Living Lab is an exhibition of ideas, prototypes and curated projects that all revolve around the subject of a healthier and more sustainable living. We hope you will feel inspired and get on board by sharing your thoughts and ideas on how we can lead better lives in the future.
In today’s fast-paced society, listening to our bodies is something we neglect more and more. If we become sick, we let experts “fix” us, rarely taking into consideration how we could have prevented illness in the first place. We at SPACE10 think it’s about time we started thinking about and designing for how we can make body awareness an integrated part of our lives, in order to prevent diseases that affect both individuals and whole societies. We need to reconnect with the most natural and powerful part of being human - our bodies - and also learn to take responsibility for our own wellbeing.
Mindfulness and other body awareness techniques are practices that can teach us how to listen to our bodies’ signals again and thereby understand how to become drivers of our own health and wellbeing. The Fresh Living Lab is about exploring both the inner and the outer drivers of a healthy and sustainable everyday life, keeping in mind that the sum of our individual life choices becomes the sum of our global condition.
