Halle is a device that was conceptualized and built as a part of Kintsugi Design’s Project Menopause. During Project Menopause, Kintsugi Design identified and investigated multiple areas affecting women as they transcend into their menopause. Our ambition is to user technology to meaningfully empower women during menopause. (#Menotech).
HALLE is a dis-connectivity device conceptualized and prototyped as part of the work done by Kintsugi Design interns Keshav Koduvayur and Thøger Kappel. It is built to strengthen the habits of focused work of menopausal women affected by brain fog. Brain fog is one of the symptoms related to menopause and it can make a person feel disorganized, confused, and unable to focus. In a society where notifications and an always-connected mentality are the norm, we are even more vulnerable to distraction.
