Connect / Life Jacket


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Mothers will always want to protect their child in a disaster. In shipping accidents, everyone will usually get their individual life jacket, causing the mother to be separated from her child. This is very painful for the mother. "Connect" is designed for both mother and baby. They are connected together by a special structure, preventing them from being separated or getting lost in the complex environment. A convenient, safe and humanistic design that protects both mother and baby.

High complexity of the design task, and works well in detail.
Jury Statement
We are very excited and grateful for being recognized by the jury of the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016. We will continue to work hard to design better things for people.
