connecting collar
concept

How do people behave when they are, to an extent, forced to be in an unfamiliar group or crowd? How do they express their fundamental need for privacy in these situations?

 

Taken individually, neither building up a fence nor withdrawing from the situation seems a proper approach. „Connecting Collar“ is a clothing item that helps to consciously connect with another person and at the same time disconnect from others. While sitting in a crowded bus, train or restaurant, two people can share their personal space and create an intimate environment to focus discreetly on each other.
