“Haptic refers to the sense of touch, and everything I design is motivated by a deep understanding of that sense," says Brooklyn-based Emily Fischer, the founder of Haptic Lab design studio. Hence her signature handcrafted Sailing Ship Kite that was years in the making. “What fascinates me is that the haptic sense is the only sense mechanism that can be extended,” she continues. “Kites allow us to experience the sense of flying. When you hold the end of a kite line and the kite swoops and dives through the air, your body internalizes that motion.”
At the other end of the spectrum, Haptic Labs comes down to earth with a series of standout quilted map blankets that embody both Emily’s crafts-based aesthetic and her former practice as an architect. Uniting all is the studio’s unceasing regard for producing goods in an ethical and sustainable manner. And always, for her, evidence of the human touch: “I love the idiosyncratic beauty of handmade things.”
