TOUCHDIY / Social Design


TOUCH DIY is a set of self-assembled furniture for strengthening and the core idea of autonomous operation for visually impaired children. Through tactile perceptions, such as the learning of the texture and the shape, children with visual impairment can organize the steps of assembling with the use of sensible touch. During the making process, children will be concentrated and increase the space and shape cognition. Further, they will build their self-confidence and achieve accomplishment as they complete the work.
