BlingIT is the concept of functional jewellery. Several of these jewellery elements can be grouped according to their specific function and depending on where they should be located on the body. With BlingIT, the idea of beautifying the body with jewellery is merged with the pragmatics of a mobile regulation of technical devices in the household. Here, the appearance and the functionality of the different devices can be adjusted individually.
As we are not able to create a complete collection as part of the Werkstatt-project, we decided to build a working prototype. Together we designed and built a bracelet with two simple functions, which we dubbed Harmlet.
