iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2019

Due to the gait and balance problems, many Thai elders injured from slipping accidents, especially in the bathroom. Most of Thai houses, there is only a small bathroom on the 1st floor which has no separated area between wet and dry zone. DUO SEAT is a showering-dressing seat for elders. It has two seats. After showering, open the seat for dressing (the second seat is under the first one). Inside the first seat, there is a rubber floor covering that can be used as a dry floor to prevent slipping and wet tips of the trousers. With DUO SEAT, a wet zone can be turned into dry in a flip to provide more safety for elders while using the bathroom.

We are very grateful to be chosen as one of the winners of iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD. This award will motivate us to design better works in the future.
