IB design
IB design

Change the shape of the smallest unit of Braille Tile for straight, the long and thin rounded rectangle with 5mm-height into long and narrow wedge with a rising(2-5mm) height. The front is smaller and lower, comparing to the back. So people can easily identify the direction of straight when standing on it. Change the number of dots in the Braille Tile for turning from 36 to 28. A part of roadface is uneven with dots, and another is flat and smooth without dots. So people can easily identify the direction of turning. Turn the smallest unit in 45° clockwise for the specifical occasion,such as washing room according to the man left custom.
