A TRIPTYCH ON INSOMNIA CJNV in collabaration with VERILIN
CJNV presents a Triptych On Insomnia. Three different ways of experiencing sleepless nights: a romantic insomnia, an existential insomnia and an annihilating insomnia. Three designs of bed linen interacting with the (non-) sleepers’ senses. Each set of linen translates sleeplessness in a tangible and minimalistic way.
‘A triptych on insomnia’ utilises the richness of thoughts on insomnia from philosophy and literature. CJNV were intrigued by the phenomena of insomnia. How does an altered perception affects the relation between sleeplessness and the sleeping environment? How can the relation between sleeplessness and the surroundig trigger an altered perception.
A fresh look at the various aspects of insomnia has lead CJNV to encourage a (philosophical) dialogue between insomniacs and their chronic sleeplessness through a more appropriate design of bedroom linen.
To realize this project CJNV collaborated with Verilin, a Belgian linen manufacturing company, producing high quality goods and always looking for innovation in their field.
