There are few things that create a stronger emotional attachment for a child than their teddy bear. But as we get older, we replace them, finding security and comfort in the phones and tablets we carry around with us everyday. While both offer a similar emotional experience, they aford a very differnt tactile experience. My goal was to apply the physical qualities of the teddy bear to our smart devices.
These cases needed to have the same soft, warm qualities as the stuffed animal, so I played with using different natural materials like leather, wool and fur. I wanted the user to feel comfortable using them in an everyday situation, so it was important that they be playful but not childish.
