Digital Wellbeing - The Store

Digital Wellbeing Showroom was a pilot digital lifestyle store launched during the London Design Festival (2005) at The Shop At Bluebird. It lasted for 4 months and showed two collections Black & White and Into the Woods.

"The Digital Wellbeing Showroom is the first of a new kind of retail environment for digital lifestyle products. The showroom presents a selection of exclusive digital appliances that include software and internet services, alongside bespoke and customized products. Digital Wellbeing believes in reducing choice whilst injecting personality into the collection as presented here. Digital Wellbeing seeks to create an inspirational retail environment that nurtures harmonious relationships between products. Discover not just electronic appliances, but also furniture, accessories, fashion, books, music, games, online services and work from internationally acclaimed and locally sourced interaction designers and media artists. We are creating a platform to encourage a greater understanding of interaction design, the interactive media arts and industry. We tune technology to create harmony in your life."
