First place award for the Future Perfect Company

Designing for the Future is run by The Future Perfect Company to encourage student designers to think about the challenges and issues affecting our ageing population – and to create innovative and attractive designs which allow older people to continue to live meaningful, enjoyable, active and independent lives.

I was the winner in 2015 for designing the “Akeso Pill Box”. Akeso (meaning the Greek Goddess of Healing) features a dial phone-inspired pill holder and water bottle and is made from lightweight and sustainable materials. Harriet took inspiration from Sabi, an award-winning US company which designs beautiful, easy to use every day products. We put Harriet in contact with Sabi’s Director of products for some useful feedback in a conference call and Sabi even shared some of their original pill box design sketches.
