INSPIRATION


PRELIMINARY SKETCHES


DESCRIPTION OF THE DESIGN Our design is a side couch storage for elder people. It’s a storage made of drawers , trash, wheels and a height adjustment stick. Its used to help old people have everything they need by their side. Its light and easy to move. It also has a height adjustment stick so they could press on it with their legs and the storage will be higher so they wouldn't’t have to bend or get up to reach any of the drawers and its cover is a rotating table so it would cover the storage but at the same time its rotated to be a table on the couch. Our idea is a way to help old people with their daily life and make it easier.
