U-Turn / Drawer for foot user

U-Turn
U-Turn

During our interview, we found that it is important that people with no hand can’t access many simple tool we daily use.
A drawer is one of the typical.
With feet only, we are...
1.hard to open the drawer.
2.hard to see all things inside.
3.hard to take out things.

Eliminate inconvenient is the goal. We provide a simple “radiated structure” to fix all the problems at the same time.
The solution is to...
1.lateral kick-open drawer.
2.an extendable drawer.
3.replace barrier with “open-gap”

A hand user can also use it even more efficiently.
