FONTUS IS A SELFFILLING WATER BOTTLE FOR YOUR BICYCLE. THIS DEVICE COLLECTS THE MOISTURE CONTAINED IN THE

AIR,

CONDENSES IT AND STORES IT AS SAFE DRINKING

WATER. POWERED BY

SOLAR CELLS, IT CAN HARVEST UP TO 0,5 L WATER IN AN HOUR´S TIME UNDER THE RIGHT CLIMATIC CONDITIONS.

FONTUS

CAN BE APPLIED IN TWO DIFFERENT AREAS. FIRSTLY, IT MAY BE INTERPRETED AS A SPORTY BICYCLE

ACCESSORY. USEFUL ON LONG BIKE TOURS, THE CONSTANT SEARCH FOR FRESHWATER SOURCES SUCH AS RIVERS AND GAS STATIONS CAN CEASE TO BE AN ISSUE SINCE THE BOTTLE AUTOMATICALLY FILLS ITSELF UP. SECONDLY, IT MIGHT BE A CLEVER WAY OF ACQUIRING FRESHWATER IN REGIONS OF THE WORLD WHERE GROUNDWATER IS SCARCE BUT AIR HUMIDITY IS HIGH. EXPERIMENTS SUGGEST THAT THE BOTTLE COULD HARVEST AROUND 0,5L WATER IN ONE HOUR´S TIME IN REGIONS WITH HIGH TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY VALUES.

HOW IT WORKS In order to achieve condensation, one must cool hot, humid air down. The device has a small cooler installed in its centre called Peltier Element.

COLD SIDE

1

This cooler is divided in two: When powered by electricity, the upper side cools down and the bottom side gets hot. The more you cool the hot side down, the colder the upper side will get. Consequently, these two sides are separated and isolated from each other.

3 1 2

2

The air enters the bottom chamber at a high speed when moving forward with the bike and cools the hot side down. Moreover, when the air enters the upper chamber it is stopped by little walls perforated non-linearly, reducing its speed in order to give the air the needed time to lose its water molecules.

3

The condensing structure represents the largest surface in the smallest space possible.This provides a large surface for condensation to happen. Droplets then flow through a pipe into a bottle. The bottle can then be turned to a vertical position and losened. Every kind of PET 0,5l bottle fits.

BOUND IS AN

INFLATABLE LIFE VEST FOR PARENT AND CHILD. IN CASE OF A CATASTROPHE, INFANT AND PARENT WILL STAY SAFE AND CLOSE TOGETHER


THE CHALLENGE

AFTER THOROUGH RESEARCH INTO SAFETY

REGULATIONS OF AIRPLANES AND SHIPS AND LIFE

VESTS IN GENERAL, I CAME TO REALIZE THAT THERE IS VERY LITTLE EFFORT INVESTED IN GUARANTEEING THE CONNECTION OF AN INFANT TO HIS PARENT IN CASE OF A CATASTROPHE. INFANTS MUST USUALLY WEAR AN INDIVIDUAL LIFE VEST. IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, PARENTS MUST CARRY OR GUIDE THEIR CHILD WITH THEIR OWN HANDS, BEING OBSTRUCTED IN PERFORMING OTHER MOVEMENTS SUCH AS OPENING DOORS OR SWIMMING. FURTHERMORE, THERE IS A GREATER CHANCE FOR INFANTS TO GET SEPARATED AND

LOST IN THE CHAOS OF THE

SITUATION.

THIS PROJECT WAS INSPIRED BY THE PROFOUND

BOUND BETWEEN A CHILD AND ITS MOTHER.

REGULATED.

STRONGHOLD

IS A BULLETPROOF VEST DESIGNED FOR WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN LVING IN WARZONES OR DANGEROUS AREAS.


THE CHALLENGE

ONGOING ARMED CONFLICTS JANUARY 2014 MAJOR WARS AND CIVIL UNREST, 1,000+ DEATHS PER YEAR MINOR SKIRMISHES AND CONFLICTS, FEWER THAN 1000 DEATHS PER YEAR

ACCORDING TO THE UNHCR, 45,2

MILLION

PEOPLE WERE FORCEFULLY DISPLACED AT THE END OF 2012, THE LARGEST NUMBER SINCE 1994.

80% OF THE REFUGEES WORLDWIDE ARE WOMEN

AND CHILDREN.

IN MOST ARMED CONFLICTS, WOMEN

AND

CHILDREN ARE INNOCENT VICTIMS. THEY ARE EITHER FORCED TO LIVE UNDER TERRIBLE CONDITIONS OR TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES IN SEARCH OF SECURITY. EXPOSED TO FIREFIGHT AND BOMBING, THEIR LIVES ARE CONSTANTLY AT RISK.

THIS PROJECT IS INTENDED TO INVITE US TO REFLECT

ON CIVILIANS´ SITUATION IN ARMED CONFLICTS TODAY.

THE VEST HAS A

BULLETPROOF MATERIAL ON THE OUTSIDE AND IT IS CUSHIONED ON THE

INSIDE. THE FRONT SIDE IS

CURVED SO THAT THERE IS ENOUGH SPACE FOR A BABY TO SIT

BETWEEN MOTHER AND VEST. AN INCLINED SURFACE ABOVE THE BABY’S HEAD PROTECTS

AGAINST

SHRAPNEL AND OTHER PROJECTILES COMING IN FROM A HIGHER ANGLE.
