An exhibition about rethinking design for human and environment.

Design Expression 6

Designer: Sheng-Hung Lee
Year: 2022
Material: PLA
Keywords: pressure control, acupoint, sense, footstep, moment

How might we reimagine the way older adults sense the world around them through the pressure of each footstep to control and capture their moments in life?

The concept was inspired by the idea of foot acupuncture points. We are trying to use cylinders in a variety of diameters, heights, positions, and materials to mimic the different levels of foot pressure points when people put on their footwear soles. We explored whether the different foot pressure points can be intuitively utilized to control footwear designed for an aging population.
