LUNAR consists of interactive light objects placed at the Youth division of the Mental Health Care GGz. LUNAR emits sound and colour upon detection as a new play therapy for children.

Filled with LEDs and interactive technologies, the objects are designed to ‘come to life’ by emitting sounds and color upon detection of children’s touch. By intervening with the existing architecture, LUNAR creates an informal interaction between children, their therapy and the building.
