LUFT 

TIME TO CHANGE


Since the 50`s meter dosed inhalers are L-shaped, made out of plastic and are engineered for one-time use only. Luft was a quick weekend exercise for the #breathbetterwithcs design challenge started by Creative Session, because practicing while having fun is the best way to improve.

KEY PAIN POINT


An asthma attack can happen at any time, so the inhaler needs to be consistently carried on person. That is why LUFT is designed as an EDC instead of medical device. The enclosed design does not need additional covers for dirt protection. The inhaler can be used one handed and is ready when you need it.

CHANGED PERSPECTIVE


Luft is the answer to low quality products with build in obsolescence that causes million of tons of unnecessary trash. The mouthpiece is covered and the sliding mechanism minimizes incorrect usage during an emergency. The design direction of LUFT is intentionally inspired by consumer and lifestyle products to move away from a stigmatizing medical device to an EDC that encourages you to life an active life.

USE CASE CENTERED


Form, Material and color are a big step away from a medical device on purpouse! Luft is a product that the end user not only trusts and relies on, but is willing to integrated into an active life style.
