Quietude is an ecology of jewellery products and accessories that enhance the experience of deaf women in a sound-oriented world. The accessories detect sounds and translate them into vibrations and shape changes. When wearing these eccessories, the deaf women will be able to perceive voices and other sounds through their body. The project develops solutions with clear aesthetic qualities to offer opportunities of engagement, emotional well-being and comfort while reducing negative impact of the impairment.
