affectic is a Smart Furniture that helps user relax. The concept of affectic is futuristic, and works on two levels, mixing a practical function with subconscious function in order to enrich the users’ daily life. To achieve this concept, affectic functions as a table in the foreground, and functions in the background as a device which analyzes marginal sound information and plays back sounds for better relaxation corresponding to the rhythm of conversation. Simultaneously, affectic records the users’ usage history and dynamically changes the generated sound based on the history.
