The WellBeings CBD Nano Mist Inhaler is a combustion-free CBD delivery device. The pocketable, user-centered form factor delivers a precise dose that allows up to eight times more bioavailability than standard CBD. The result is a highly effective non-burning delivery method with near-immediate absorption, onset, and effect. The design of the WellBeings Nano Mist Inhaler naturally supports people’s mental and physical health in a more comfortable, effective, targeted way and eliminates the social stigma with which inhalers are often associated. Without being overly clinical, the product creates a sense of legitimacy and trust.

Surface Earbuds feature an ultra-comfortable design, intuitive touch and voice controls, screen-free access to Office 365, immersive sound for music and calls, and an all-day battery. The earbuds are secured in place with two points of contact in the ear, leaving you free to run, jump, and twist and turn. Yet the fit doesn’t occlude the ear, allowing you to stay connected to the world around you with both your eyes and ears. The touch sensor lets you control the earbuds through simple swipe gestures. Swipe up or down to change the volume, swipe forward or back to change the song, double tap to play or pause, and press and hold to access the assistant.

Project Better is a casual footwear collection that focuses on well-being. The design principles are rooted in consumer insights from research and ethnography studies in Amsterdam, an urban epicenter of the wellness lifestyle. “Better” means putting the human first, developing shoes from a new perspective, reducing materials and amplifying the benefits of natural ones. The shoes are made with only the essential elements, deconstructed without extraneous layers, to enhance the natural movement of the foot. The foot and heel are surrounded by the comfort of merino wool, and the entire foot bed is washable.

The Essentials Suite is a wheelchair-attachable lifestyle collection that fuses design and function. Developed alongside wheelchair users, the Suite consists of an array of products such as cup holders, wallets and bags that permit users to be as hands-free as possible. By placing people who have disabilities at the core of the design process, industrial design and fashion design can erase the societal barriers and stigmatization often associated with disability. Wheelchairs and mobility devices aren’t only vital modes of mobility and independence; they are fundamental factors of style and self-expression—a message the Essentials Suite reinforces.
