The Warm Wall is a new installation that's offering a public space where women can be temporarily comforted from period pains.

The Warm Wall is a simple design that can be seamlessly integrated into public bathrooms. It features a curved, heated wall that offers comfort when leaned on. According to the artist, Lauren Lee, "I wanted to create something that was integrated into public space—an amenity and a resource, rather than something you go out and buy for yourself."

The project, created by Lauren Lee fuses art and architecture to create an installation that encourages women to engage in discussions about the pains of menstruation, effectively building a community based on mutual understanding and support.
