Rugi is a smart textile weight scale, designed for
home environment, with an adjustment Rugi app.
The product is an outcome of a research based on the
environmental influences associated with the moment
and experience of being weighed.
Furthermore, the identification of the scale as a
"behavior changing" object, culturally and personally.
The scale doesn't look, feel, or react, like the object
we have come to know.
Rugi is a 100% wool rug, with a layer of inductive woven fabric that reacts to the pressure of the weight it receives. The inductive textile allows the scale to be part of the home furnitures.
Rugi intervene in the moment of being weight and in the object it self and give them a different materialistic identity and different informative feedback.
The information is obtained by the Rugi app, and the timing is determined by the user. The changes in the new interface of the object creates a new intimate experience, that allows us, as users, to read the weight as mass and object, differently.
