Final Year Project(s)
Stackpack is a backpack that aims to improve the user experience of Canoe polo athletes. It features two removable triangular compartments that are integrated with their helmet below to maximize space efficiency. The upper triangular compartments can be used to store clothes for easy removal and transport to the bathroom. The drawstring helmet pocket can also be hidden, allowing it to be used as an everyday bag instead.
Stackpack is also a waterproof backpack made out of recycled PVC banners which aims to tackle the mounting textile waste made by fast fashion through the upcycling of used PVC banners.
