iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

Asthma is a chronic disease that requires many people to use an inhaler from childhood throughout life. There is a need for age-appropriate inhalers to suit users of different ages. Yet the standard design of inhalers does not take the age of the user into account. The POP Inhaler, which can be used for life with just one kit, is modular and can be adapted to age and symptoms. Fun memories of ice-cream and balloons are a key motif of this product. This reduces a child’s fear when learning how to use this medical device.

I think that this award is the result of growth. I will keep working hard to become a designer who constantly seeks new challenges and new values.
