In the war zone, battle is pretty cruel for
people,many of them have been injured, and
some were hurt on their fingers and arms. So,
many of them have lost the basic self-care
ability. Not only that,the similar results
are also frequently caused by accidents.For
the vulnerable group whose forearms are
amputated, it's quite difficult for them to
hold up a basin by arms. It can be a very big
obstacle when they're living alone.For
disabled people whose fingers or arms are
broken, it is also impossible for them to use
basins by arms.By changing the apperance of a
basin we designd two extended areas on the
main part of a basin, for the use of those
whose forearms are amputated, and then for
ease of their using of a basin.We changed the
apperance of a basin by applying the Bionics
Princple, and designed two extended areas
which shaped like a children's arms on the
main part of a basin. The users can put
their arms on the Negative Space to hold up
the basin by embracing the areas and
exerting their arm's strength.
