Paris-based designer Eva Rielland has created a a series of objects entitled ‘Objets d'un autre âge' or ‘Objects of another age.' This project was designed to make high-tech tools more easily understood by everyone, especially the elderly.

The four objects focus on communications features in the world of computers. They are designed to reduce learning curve anxiety and errors by clearly separating the different functions, enabling users to write, view, upload images and print. The objects are the frame (for video chat), the mailbox (to exchange emails), the printer (to print images) and the visual (to view images).
