LUFT2017

ACTIVE WITH ASMTHA 

TASK


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 my skills.

INSIGHT


Asthma is a life long illness and an attack can happen at any time, so the inhaler needs to be consistently carried on person. The mouthpiece cover can easily be lost and becomes a critical time waster during an asthma attack.That`s why LUFT is designed as an EDC instead of medical device.

SOLUTION


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.
