After a disaster happened, emergency support kits will be dispatched for first aid use. Hoping to recycle the packing box, we redesign it.
Post of disaster, gravels and sharp objects are scattered everywhere. It is unsafe to walk barefoot on the disaster spot where gravels and sharp objects are all around. Therefore, we create a simple dotting pattern inside the box to be used as emergency shoes by folding the pattern. After a simple folding, it can change a packing box into a pair of emergent shoes.
