The stand integrates the objects in the exhibition, its design historical information and the visitors' comments. An interactive map with the layout of the permanent exhibition is the interface (built using
ImaNote). On the map it’s possible to navigate different materials related to the design objects, leave comments and links to Internet resources.

Through the stand, the design historical and documentative material by museum experts is exhibited in parallel to stories gathered from museum visitors. In the first stage results and different audio-visual materials from the workshops (Esa and the Objects, The Sound of Objects and Odes for the Objects) are displayed. Visitors can comment on these results, on the objects from the exhibition and on other visitors' comments.

Comments can be made on-site using the interactive stand in the museum or on-line from a remote station (ex. at home). By allowing comments before, during and after the visit is a way our aim is to extend and enrich the dialogue within the museum community.
