VERSATILE beyond 20/20 A utility cart designed for people with limited vision.
This project is done in collaboration and consultation with Cesar Gomez, a professional in the field of visual impairments. Research and User Testing were done with National Association for Visually Handicapped (NAVH),
VERSATILE is a response to the social issues concerned with disability (specifically visual impairment). The design of furniture often reflects a lack of empathy and awareness of differing abilities in everyday functions, an¬d does not allow for comfortable use by the visually impaired.
VERSATILE is designed to aid and assist those with limited vision in the workspace by highlighting elements of organization and navigation within the product. This modular furniture system is customizable to the user's needs so that it can functionally assist with mundane activities.
The next steps of this project would be to design a line of furniture and environments that address the issues particular to the visually impaired community.
