Unlearn is a responsive mat that allows people to awaken and connect with their body as soon as they get out of bed.

The product is inspired by Steve Paxton’s ‘Contact-Improvisation’ dance technique, where dancers use the physical laws of friction, momentum, gravity and inertia to explore the relationship between bodies and the space around them. By working through four basic stages- ‘to wake’, ‘to balance’, ‘to explore’, ‘to touch’- the user enjoys a series of spontaneous interactions with their own body, gradually waking up and allowing them to start the day feeling grounded in themselves.
