MA Product Design


Each brick of the product represents a year in life. It is a visualised progress of life. Each birthday in our life, the user will remove one brick from the holder.
Each brick is a tombstone of the time of the past year. The reducing bricks remind us of the truth of our short life, and the number of left bricks is a count down of the inevitable death.

When the user removed all the bricks, the user might still be alive. In this case, they know they have lived longer than average. Each day is a bonus.
