Premature babies often experience problems in their development throughout their lives. Imagine the world of a baby in an infant

incubator: instead of forming a strong bond with their mother in her protective womb, they are in hard, sterile and noisy surroundings.

Every check-up, drip and bleep disturbs their development.


Rebekka Strenk proposes a new approach that does not start at life-saving

technologies, but at the child’s experience. Her toolbox is meant to inspire everyone involved to make that change. Two layers, one

representing the current situation and the other the desired one, demonstrate the logic of the design she is working on now: which

provides the comfort and protection of the womb and at the same time stimulates the bonding process to gives the smallest babies the best

chance at life.
