SymbiosisO is a collection of textile interfaces. The form, function, and aesthetics are designed to mimic the multi-layered structures of living organisms.

SymbiosisW is a three-dimensional material that senses human touch. The material responds by revealing small cell patterns that start to grow when touched by a person's hand. The motif spreads by keeping one's hand against the material. It is also possible to create a desired arrangement of patterns.
