Fire Extinguisher Design For Movie Theater

Fire in a dark movie theater could be a very dangerous thing. This is why it’s important to design a fire extinguisher for the context of a movie theater. Franklin Gaw, an industrial designer, has designed a fire extinguisher that is not only based on the presence of existing fire extinguisher but also as an unobtrusive object in its environment. Because of the dark and spacious nature of movie theaters, the designer wanted the extinguisher to not only be as accessible as possible, but also completely intuitive through its simple form, ease of use, and integration into its environment. You can see how this unit works from the pictures below.

Roam Lightweight Respiratory Unit for Children

Designed for children with high portability, Roam Lightweight Respiratory Unit features compact size and stylish appearance. It’s a humanized oxygen cylinder that comes with a nasal mask, easy on the user’s face to breath in the oxygen. Roam oxygen refillable cylinder contains liquid oxygen enclosed in an epoxy carbon fiber vessel. Liner-less cylinder offers almost 45% weight reduction compared to conventional tanks, therefore, it’s pretty light weight. Roam is able to expose its coil to convert liquid to gaseous oxygen using just average room temperature, there’s an electronic valve to monitor and control the flow of liquid to breathable gaseous oxygen, no more constant maintenance needed here.

For anyone who suffers sudden asthmatic attacks, oxygen therapy is the fastest way to treat this medical threat. Unfortunately, it remains inaccessible due to its tank physical weight and size. Our existing oxygen cylinders are heavy and large in size, the mobility is limited to where the attachment of the “nasal prongs” (2 plastic tubes leading into the nose) and the oxygen cylinder can move (industrial cylinders are difficult to use and maintain).

Volkswagen Mimio Can Represent The Future Commuting Alternative With Great Power And Usability

Can you ignore the possibility of using privately owned vehicles within metropolitan areas getting prohibited all over the world by 2032? An industrial designer, Jacky Wu envisioned that scenario when car would be parked outside and the only accessible vehicle into the city would be personal bicycles. That’s why he designed the innovative Volkswagen Mimio vehicle with most of the interior containing storage space for folding bicycles. The shape of this small 3 meter long two-seater is an outcome of his extensive research. To ensure better stability, the rear wheels of the car are clipped in slots and contain two engines to get maximum performance. This two engine construction ensures power distribution only when needed. The rear part of the vehicle contains a dynamo that generates power through the rear drag wheels to ensure prolonged battery life.

HABILITY: Easyfood and Valcucine

Hability was born from the need to combine a careful analysis of the needs of the disabled with the creation of a kitchen that is not merely accessible but also aesthetically pleasant and accurate in every detail. The collaboration between architect Marco Miscioscia, a designer attentive to the world of the disabled, and Valcucine, a company that has made the philosophy of beauty its motto, has resulted in the creation of this industrial product that can be utilized just as well by people with no handicap as by the disabled, without the kitchen labeling the person as is often the case with similar projects.

Easy Food is a system in stainless steel for the kitchen, designed to reduce work during food preparation. It is extremely innovative in terms of ergonomics, safety and technical solutions and has been designed to be very accessible to the advantage of anyone using the kitchen. The stainless steel top has been made from a single mould. This technology avoids welding and built-in elements that would increase costs and imperfections.
