Submitted Davide Esposti, Willy is a homemade face mask that can be easily created from commonly found materials around the house. The shape is designed in a way that helps to protect user’s airway, the wire and the hook allows for custom adjustment at will.
Willy Paper Face Mask offers a cheap solution in case that you’re running out of disposable mask or you just wash all your reusable cloth face mask. In this way, you can still protect others when you go out (yes, wearing face mask is about protecting others and the air around you from your droplets, so don’t be selfish, not everything is about you, during this coronavirus pandemic, please wear a mask!).
Based on simple triangular geometric shapes, this mask is designed with critical points to correctly cover your nose and mouth. The structure of Willy Face Mask follows the line of human face, therefore, it helps protect airway, allowing user to breathe easy. Davide Esposti used a CAD cardboard stamp for the construction then joined with the stapler, for the fixing process, he chose to use wire or elastics. Using a simple hook, it’s possible to adjust the wire and make it fit for everyone to avoid possible size problems. The result is a facemask with good aesthetic that can be customized to your own taste. It’s cheap and all materials are easy to find, everyone can make this face mask, they can also change them frequently to be safe.
