Hedgehog idea

2015

A method for inviting new conversations.
How has the internet changed our social behaviour? We have become a society that seems to have forgotten how to have personal interactions with strangers.

Cultivate a sense of value for unintended conversations by proviting a system to communicate about the mood towards a up-comming conversaton.



Observation






Approach





The hedgehog idea is a method for opening new personal conversations, especially with strangers. Different coloured coffee sleeves should break the ice between strangers and help to start new conversations. A coffeehouse patron can decide if they would like to invite conversation or not. The green one means “Talk to me“ and the red one means “talk to me.“ Double-sided printing enables switching the inside out, so one can change their mind in a spontaneous fashion. The logo and the name is inspired by the hedgehog which also has distinct ways of communicating a mood of openness versus feeling closed-off.

We want to transition to a talkative, interactive society; welcoming and open. Get offline and rediscover face-to-face interaction in real life.
