ADI Medals 2012 - Gold
Marion's proposal is an identification system for tetra briks and cans, customized for blind people. The result is a band composed of two elements: a flexible silicone platinum, for adaptation to different types of packaging, and the other a custom stamp made of rigid ABS plastic.
«Vinculum» helps to recognize the contents of the carton and cans without having to smell their contents every time you take something from the fridge.
