Based on the concept of collaborative craft, the proposal is designed around the acts of knitting and weaving. The space is a non-medical dementia clinic with two consultation rooms, a cafe and ‘retreat space’ where patients can create and chat, hence the name ‘yarn’. The design of the treat trolley was based on the traditional conversation seat and made into a train of alternating seats. The chairs become the canvas on which the creations are displayed as well as the rest of the surfaces of the space through a variety of methods.
