When we were asked by MUJI to design a resting space for the garden city of Singapore, we naturally thought of the rest of mind. Perhaps, it is due to the breathless pace of life here or maybe it is the continuous tick-tock of the equatorial city without seasonal pauses. We decided to design a pause, one each day. To step away of clock time, the incense stick is the natural choice for an indication of how much time has passed. One has to fight the urge to check the time or messages on the phone. 20 mins of pause, mindfulness or just simply being present, this is a space to experience every passing moment - not in the past or the future - just here, now.
