The main focus was to create a system that supports the delimitation of space: concealing the space when not needed. By means of biomimetics we conceived an interactive element that works within a porous grid and behaves as the perennial herb Mimosa Pudica.

The result is an element that would appear when and where it would be needed and would interact by touch with the space users. The control of special definition element can be done by the user through an app available for any smart phone or it could be self-regulated with the help of a central swarm monitoring system.
