LONELY POOL PEOPLE
A CUSTOMIZED POOL, TARGETED TO PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM A POOLLESS SOCIAL CIRCLE.
When temperatures starts reaching the 25°C mark, I noticed the rise of a specific kind of tweet. People expressing their frustrations and discomfort of not having access to a pool, through tweets. I found that the main themes of these tweets are jealousy and loneliness, which stem from not having friends with pools.
I designed a pool for these 'lonely pool people' made in a specific shape and material, to cater loneliness. After researching loneliness, I got inspired by the infamous “blow-up sex doll”. The shape of these dolls was the starting point for the design of the pool. The cheap plastic material in combination with the odd shape, result in a lonely looking pool. Never has this project been more relevant as in these times of isolation.
