The fittings on soft goods go barely noticed most of the time, yet form a crucial part of the products’ overall appearance and user experience. As soon as we become restricted in our mobility, some of the mechanisms of these fittings can quickly become a major challenge in everyday life. This semester, under the guidance of Friederike Daumiller, the students worked with the Swiss association ASA-Handicap mental and the senior-lab to developed hardware for garments that are dedicated to the idea of inclusive design.
