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.
