Rotating Shelf System
There are objects that automatically confirm their usage, such as a toilet lock that turns red to confirm “locked”. How do I know if I washed my hands? How can I be sure I put all ingredients inside a cake, if the outcome is one homogenous mixture?

The rotating shelf system indicates one hygiene task after another. One has to rotate the shelf at a quarter in order to approach task two. Beneath each glass vessel, a small slider is integrated into the wooden plate. It can be moved between two symbols, representing night and day. The idea is to shift the slider after having accomplished a task. A 360° rotation is completed if all four sliders are placed on “morning”. The routine then only needs to be repeated in the evening, by rotating and resetting the sliders back to the right side.
