Moment | 2019

The routine of smoking a cigarette is almost exactly the same every time.
Is it only the nicotine that makes smoking addictive, or is the routine a big part of it?

 

I started my research with the question; ‘ Why can’t people manage themselves and start smoking again after they just quit?’. This question is based on the fact that 80% of all smokers once tried to quit but eventually start smoking again.

In 'Moment' I designed tools inspired on the routine of smoking. This will be used when the person craves for a cigarette. With these product you still experience the routine of smoking, but without harming yourself and others. 

At the Dutch Design week 2018, together with foundation Pharos the work was presented at Klokgebouw Eindhoven.
