How did we come up with this idea
Kateřina Pražáková and Anna Kutíková, graduates in industrial design from the Faculty of Architecture, Czech Technical University in Prague, friends and the visionaries behind the anti-stress gadget Breathing Friend, which has changed over the course of time, but in spirit remains the same.
Thanks to all those without whose help all this wouldn't have been possible!
How was Breathing Friend conceived?
Katka:The idea of the Breathing Friend gadget began back at school. I found the principle thanks to consultation with psychologists, whose first recommendation to their clients is to stop and begin to breathe correctly.
Anička:And I joined Katka, who started the project, once I'd finished my studies.
What do you enjoy most about the project?
Katka:The most attractive thing about the project is the idea that you're creating something that has a purpose and can genuinely help people. This keeps me going in situations where complications arise.
Anička:I remember the first time I held it in my hand. It really struck me by how authentic and live it was. I like the fact that it's something that can connect people from various disciplines. It enabled me to see way beyond what I'd studied and showed me the wider context.
