A flexible wooden device, “Trækvejret” which emulates a slow rate of breathing is placed in a coffee break room. This work examines related works on reflection, triggering reflection, and breathing and biofeedback technologies. We demonstrate how simple technology such as Trækvejret, which does not measure or give feedback about a user’s breathing can nonetheless potentially be useful and provoking, encouraging reflection and potentially, behaviour change.
