Jewellery products that enhance

the experience of deaf women

in a sound-oriented world


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 accessories, the deaf women will be able to perceive voices and other sounds through their body.
The project is coordinated by Santa Chiara Fab Lab, University of Siena.
