SilenceTop is an interactive microarchitecture that reinterprets the traditional Korean soban table. This project aims to create a new form of interaction through silence by emphasizing nonlinguistic cues for interaction. SilenceTop challenges established notions of solitude and awkward conversational gaps while reshaping the domestic landscape. By harmonizing architectural and furniture dimensions, SilenceTop fosters interactivity among objects, spaces, and humans. The design offers easy assembly, adapting seamlessly to domestic settings with diverse spatial functions. Each seating side is positioned 75 cm apart, striking a balance for interaction in relationships both intimate and formal. The project focuses on silence, redefines object-space-human interactivity, and enriches the experience of person-environment engagement.
