Case studies


I have great 3 case studies by now, all different and interesting for comparing design strategies, for testing in the field and background for interviews. These are:

K8 Bell Lamp : an integrated, smooth design of a solar cell lamp with phone charger;

NUFU Solar cooker: a research project at NTNU developing a new, innovative type of solar cooker:

ShelterBox, a holistic and quality focused concept for sudden-onset disasters:

I would like to express my appreciation to these for participating in my research.

I am also waiting for a confirmation from ToughStuff, who have a module based solution, and BioLite, and I hope to have them as a additional case studies for further comparison to be able to map the entry barriers and design challenges of design for emergencies and humanitarian aid organizations.
