“In Haiti, of primary school age children are not enrolled in school”

“Kids are required to go to school wearing shoes”

Jennifer Francois

“Even the poorest people would want to have a shoe [rather than a sandal].”

Fabrice Marcelin

No Shoes = No Education


bike tires?

commonly not recycled prevalent in Haiti (used for strikes) easy to cut and shape!

1 bike tire = 8 shoe soles

bike tires were easy to manipulate, readily available and very durable!


In order to make a simple shoe I referred to medieval shoe templates to construct simple prototypes

Initial renders and research on kid’s shoes made us focus on an

easy fastening system and heel support.


MODEL ITERATION

first 3 models original 3 models explored different ways to construct the shoe and address the fastening system.

one template, too weak

3 templates, stronger

rubber opening, too fragile

just right!

Strapping wing eliminates shoelaces and provides large opening to easily slide foot.

Custom button’s hook, inspired by Haiti’s geographic shape. Alternatives such as standard buttons or bent stainless steel buttons can also be used.

An average of 8 soles can be made from a single tire


“Apparel exports accounted for two-thirds of the country’s total exports in 2008� economywatch.com

business model The textile factories in Haiti provide adequate tooling and training. Shoes made for school children are given as charity while the remaining become an export.

LOPHII BIKE HOW CAN WE UPDATE A CLASSIC? The Lophii Bike is an experiment on redesigning the storage as well as seating integration on a bike. Inspiration was taken from Calatrava bridges, fish movement and weaving.

ANTHROPROMETIC STUDY [for the 50th percentile person]

Posture studies determined the perfect location of the seat in relation to the pedal and the steering bar. The upright position allows for better visibility and comfort during the ride

LIGHT BULB PACKAGING BULB PACKAGING REDUCING PACKAGING MATERIAL This light bulb packaging finds inspiration from ancient Japanese egg packaging in order to create a new method of protection and aesthetic enhancement

EGG

LIGHT BULB


Initial exploration used paper templates to create different shapes to contain the light bulbs

VS Japanese Egg packaging was the main inspiration due to its beauty + function.

STURDILY HOUSES 3 LIGHT BULBS

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY Almost the same amount of material for 3 bulbs

OPENING IS FUN & INSPIRED BY JAPANESE GIFTS

RIP THEM OUT FROM THE PACKAGE AS NEEDED


ANT GLUE TRAP HOW CAN WE MAKE TRAPS BEAUTIFUL? The Can Can Ant Glue Trap introduces the Can Can pattern in a very lethal yet beautiful manner. Initially invisible to the eye, the pattern will be revealed as more ants fall prey on the sticky path.

KING MANATEE PROCESS: DESIGN A CHARACTER Using automotive clay, this manatee toy prototype features a stylized manatee with a snorkel. The model has the intention of becoming the mold for a pool foam toy to teach kids how to swim.

Construction skeleton using custom sized MDF boards + thermoformed plastic.

Sketches + original front/side/bottom views.


SANDABLES REDEFINING SANDING SANDABLES are moldable sand paper blocks that come in different grits and can adapt to difficult shapes (corners, complex curves, etc) previously impossible to achieve. The design process was possible with the Quirky online community.
