Medietas is based on the central position of a table in a house. The surface of the table reflects the situations happening around it. This is created by the mass of objects and people leaving their mark in the material.

The interactions create a constant changing relief which slowly gets back into its original shape when left to rest. This reflects the situation around the table coming and fading away, leaving its mark.  

The material research for the project ended up at the choice for moss. Moss has the same quality as for instance memory foam. But there is one significant difference, it’s alive. The user needs to take care of the object.

Therefore the table does not only become a piece of immidiate reflection but the user has to take care of the aftermaths of their behaviour. It offers a moment of reflection.
