At this year’s Milan International Furniture Fair, University of Art and Design Lausanne (ECAL) decided to create a playful interpretation of a modern-day smart home. It’s called “Delirious Home,” and was created entirely by Bachelor students under the watchful eyes of Alain Bellet and Chris Kabel.

Some of the more humorous creations include hypersensitive cacti that like it when you caress them, armchairs that invite you to enjoy a lively and meaningful conversation, and a fan that amplifies you breath.

Alain Bellet and Chris Kabel commented:

With Delirious Home, ECAL students teach us to take control of the latest techniques and appliances we thought controlled us. The students demonstrate their artful mastery of electronics, mechanics and interaction, developing a new kind of esthetic which goes further than just a formal approach.
