ExoSurface

Information

ExoSurface is a temporary walkway which enables the public to traverse disrupted surfaces in a post-earthquake environment. This system consists of five components that can be reconfigured to adapt to any surface scenario. It is light weight and geometrically simple to ensure effective deployment and efficient storage.
As a designer I aim to create products that are of great benefit to people and their experiences. I find curiosity in the functions and processes behind all things whilst actively being inspired by fun, unconventionality and sustainability.
