iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

This is a brand new design for a life jacket for boat and ferry passengers. As people board, they will be asked to put on this life jacket which, in the event of an emergency, transforms into a personal lifeboat. A concept that would have been impossible a generation ago is now feasible thanks to the development of ultra-lightweight materials.

We are very happy to have been chosen by the iF judges. We were very excited when we heard the news. Thank you very much for recognizing our work. This inspires and motivates us to continue coming up with new design ideas.
