«Showroom» is a space equipped with a variety of devices where potential customers can observe samples of our new products and pleasantly spend time awaiting their order. Clients experience different tactile feelings reinforced with sensual visual images. For the diversion of our visitors, there is a children’s playpen equipped with two infants who crawl around and mumble «Hungry, mommy» when activated.
#1 is a soft, flat, tactually appealing panel resembling a child’s mattress. It has several openings. When a visitor inserts a finger, object #6 is activated.
#6 resembles a very large pillow, approximately 170 cm high and 440 cm wide, made of parachute silk. When activated by #1, the pillow inflates and its protrusions are erected. #2 is a control panel set on a pedestal, and has three soft, malleable «joysticks».
Visitors may reshape the form of the joysticks, which are pleasant to the touch and which also activate other items.
In the center of «Showroom», samples of our product are displayed.
The extra-large men’s and women’s underwear is both durable and sophisticated.
