We were thrilled to be asked to take part in this year’s Design Zone at the Mobility Roadshow and, in particular, to showcase projects from our “Designing for the Future” student design competition.
“Designing for the Future” which we run in conjunction with the University of Brighton is now in its third year and encourages student designers to think about the challenges and issues affecting our ageing population – and to create innovative and attractive and designs which allow older people to continue to live enjoyable, active and independent lives.
The Mobility Roadshow is an annual three day event for all things mobility related; everything from adapted vehicles and charity stands, to 4 x 4 wheelchairs and mobility scooters. This year’s Design Zone was curated by Enabled by Design and Such and Such Design who pulled together a host of new and innovative designs that can help to support people to live as independently as possible.
The Design Zone showcase is sponsored by Autoadapt and supported by the Royal College of Art’s Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design and, as well as work from our “Designing for the Future” project, featured designs and products from Northumbria University as well as from other innovative companies and charities.
