ECAD design school graduate Celine Forestier has created a series of faceted pillboxes on a multilevel plinth, with each level representing a different day of the week.
The goal of the project was to change attitudes towards medication at home and ultimately de-stigmatize the pillbox. Says Forestier, “Faced with the typology that inevitably comes from the universe of the ‘cold hospital’, I planned a more serene medical object by incorporating it into the domestic landscape.”
The plinth and the pillboxes are designed to maintain a daily rhythm, make it easy for the user connect the day of the week, and time of day, with that days’ requirements. “These objects in their aesthetic and sensitivity question the psychological link between the drug and its users.”
