'Melodicware' describes a set of auditory design sculptures by Agustina Bottoni that are intended to create sounds in response to being touched.

The set of sculptural objects is made up of brass tube chimes that have been specifically cut in such a way to emit the sounds of selected musical notes. To encourage the pieces to come alive with music, tactile elements have been added to the sculpture, such as colorful, hand-knotted hanging string tassels. With each touch that is made, the potential for a completely unique sound experience is created with the abstract design sculptures. As the designer describes, the multi-sensory sculptures are designed to "convey a message of hospitality and joy."

The Melodicware sculptures were initially launched at this year's Milano Design Week as part of the interactive Fenomena exhibition.
