Cane, U-Cane (No Country For Old Men: Together Canes), 2012
Many people avoid using canes and walkers because the objects look like medical equipment. Each piece in this family of prototypes is designed as an element of domestic life, supporting rich social and mental activities while encouraging safe mobility. The T-Cane helps users serve tea and snacks. The U-Cane holds books, magazines, and supplies for knitting and crafting. The I-Cane doubles as an iPad stand.
