To carry a Shelterbox – a student project


Master student Christoffer Sæther Sørensen conducted an analyzis of the Shelterbox user interaction from storage to end user, with the goal to suggest a product improvement to improve strenght and to make it easier to deliver this emergency equipment to families around the globe. This was a part of the course TPD4500, Product Design 9, Specialization Project, spring 2012 at the Department of Product Design, NTNU, and Christoffer was under my supervision. The resulting concept is a super simple add-on to the box, that will make it possible to carry the Shelterbox in almost any terrain.Please contact Christoffer at christoffersepost@gmail.com if you are interested in this product or process.
