How do we imagine the future of accessories? Will they be made of metals such as gold, silver, bronze and precious stones? Or will they be conceived from new synthetic ergonomic and intelligent materials such as titanium, carbon, plastics and elastometers? HMO is an experimental project that investigates this area of design and science. Interested in the balance between technology and nature, this project seeks to participate in the new generation of accessories, conceived as artifacts made of smart material that will amplify our human senses and natural capacities in the near future.
