For the third year in a row, Elisava Undergraduate Degrees students have completed their Final Degree Projects in collaboration with Adidas MakerLab, the platform for the creation of the renowned sports firm Adidas. The projects are part of the Elisava x Adidas MakerLab programme The Human Upgrade Movement, a synergistic space between the university and the brand.
Tutored by Elisava teachers and members of the Adidas team, the projects have been designed from different angles and with great creative freedom by the students. From the manufacture of wearables to the creation of innovative garments and accessories. All with the aim of creating new projects that improve the well-being of people by exploring the possibilities of the local economy, fast prototyping and digitally assisted manufacturing. Elisava's tutors, who are also the promoters of the project, have been Saúl Baeza, Oscar Tomico and Lluís Sallés.
Here are some of these projects:
Beyond Boundaries, by Simultanoeous Studies programme (double Degree in Design and Degree in Industrial Design Engineering) student Laia Moras, is a self-production kit of skin patches that help overcome a gestational loss. Designed to act as emotional releases, they help to materialize the various stages of the grieving process resulting from a miscarriage. The project proposes a more emotional way to heal the loss, following a DIY nature (each user creates his own) to achieve a process as personal as possible and with a compostable cycle that allows patients to close stages.
