A vanity table optimised for selfies and a tactile rug that helps you avoid walking into walls while virtual-reality gaming were among the objects presented at this year's Milan design week by Singaporean designer Olivia Lee. Lee's Athena collection of furniture and accessories aims to solve some of the problems created by the presence of new technologies in our homes. Rather than incorporating technologies directly into the items, Lee wanted to create products that would be "future-proof" by virtue of being analogue. This means they wouldn't require software updates and could adapt to the variously sized future generations of devices. "What I wanted to do was approach the idea of a smart home differently and to try to address the new rituals and the new normals of the digital lifestyle, but through a very analogue way," Lee told Dezeen. "So all the furniture doesn't require any electronics." "It's purely a revision and an evolution of familiar archetypes to keep up with our digital needs." The Athena collection incorporates a vanity, rug, acoustic panel system and tray tables in various predominantly pastel shades.
