Miriam Bohnenkamper

MA Design and Innovation

In this project, I will create objects for London based psychotherapists and their clients who suffer from suicidal thoughts. I do not aim to replace any form of treatment. Instead my intention is to raise awareness for available options for help and support for therapists and clients in their consultation sessions. The project focuses on people who actively seek help through psychotherapeutic treatment. My designs will support the psychotherapists so that they can support their clients. My work questions the role of the designer. In my project the psychotherapists act as a intermediary between my designs and their use with clients.
