Melbourne Movement designer Viviene Chang will exhibit 'Empathik' at Salone Satellite 2013 in Milan.

Empathik - Designed by Viviene Chang and exhibited at Salone Satellite 2013 - Milan

Empathik, designed with an inclusive approach, is a mobility aid for seniors which transforms into a flexible shopping trolley. It challenges conventional approaches to walking frames, by integrating subtle feminine visual cues and is a light weight structure with ergonomic forms adaptable to the human body. The flexibility of the design enables users to adapt easily to surrounding environments and situations.

Vivian is an emerging designer based in Melbourne who recently graduated from Industrial design, RMIT. She has a strong passion for inclusive design, which focuses on benefiting the user. She aims to design for those who are disregarded in society or on the edge, by extending her own design knowledge into different disciplines. Vivian constantly seeks to develop a greater sense of empathy and compassion towards others, which enables her designs to be a reflection of her. Her designs seek to innovate and enhance the delight for human life.
