Office Striders

DATA - 2020 - 01 - 24 〜  2020 - 03 - 31

運動不足になりがちなオフィスワークにおいて、ビル内での距離の少ない横移動でも、思わず速歩・大股歩きをしてしまうフロアデザイン。宇宙をモチーフとし、銀河歩道でのウォーキングを演出した。
時速6.4kmの速歩のような中強度(5MET)の活動を20分、8000歩のウォーキングを毎日続けることで、健康維持に繋がる。
*Metabolic Equivalent of Task (運動強度)– 身体活動とその消費エネルギーの関係を示す指標。

Office Striders is a spatial design intervention to the office workstyle that lacks exercise. Despite short distances office workers can walk in the building of their office, speed walking and walking with long steps increase the MET of walking, which contribute to health. The galaxy walkway motif is intended to evoke light-speed travel.
*Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET)
–the objective measure of the ratio of the rate at which a person expends energy, relative to the mass of that person, while performing some specific physical activity compared to a reference, set by convention at 3.5 mL of oxygen per kilogram per minute, which is roughly equivalent to the energy expended when sitting quietly.
