The GRIP relaxation space offers employees an adaptive environment that reacts to their presence by creating a personal space, varying in size, soundscape and animated light. The environment stimulates paced breathing, meditation and helps employees to become more aware and in control of their personal response to stressors and relaxation.


The original relaxation space was built-up at the ExperienceLab of Philips. Several evaluations were conducted with the working community as well as with experts in the field of stress management, relaxation training and design. These initial results turned out to be promising and the prototype caught interest of various parties.

In this month's Turn the Page magazine, Dirk Snelders talks about the GRIP project from CRISP. Turn the Page is the magazine released by Study Association i.d of Industrial Design Engineering in Delft. In the two page article, Dirk explains about his research and the way people reacted to the first prototype of GRIP.

On the 20th of October, CRISP project GRIP will present at the PROUD Proms seminar. The PROUD Proms is an exchange event on co-design for everyone interested in co-design and human centered design. In a pitch of 90 seconds, the core of the project will be conveyed. The seminar is open for everyone to visit and takes place in the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.
