There was one time when I moved a heavy stuff upstairs,I found that there was nowhere placing them.Therefore I gave priority to design a platform which can load stuffs for the staircase.However,after a long period of thinking,it suddenly occurred to me that designing it from stair handrail itself would not only save space and cost,but also create more extending benefits and functions like the easier-grasping of the handrail for the old.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design of the right angle stair handrails derives from the observation of daily life that changes the existing handhails.Found that the current design of the stair handrails lacking of humanization,did not take into account the pregnant women downstairs can not see the ladder and the elderly upstairs problems.The new handrail design should be consistent with the steps,to help pregnant women,the elderly and the heavy lifting people more easily up and down.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The staircase does not only meet the basic functional needs but also focuses on providing convenience for the special crowd.For example,it will benefits the old to grasp the handrail and help them climb the staircase.Besides,it also provide a temporary relax platform for the heavy stuff carrier.Last but not least,it can show the way of the staircase clearly and hence the pregnant woman are entitled to better staircase condition in case of falling down.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started from 11,2016 and was completed in 1,2017 in Zhengzhou.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The stair handrail is made up of several sections of wood,which can be transported by many components.When installing,they can be installed on the upright which is convenient for transportation and space-saving.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The actual size of the handrail is in accordance with the height and width of the staircase.
Staircase, Handrail, Wood Splice, The old, Pregnant woman, Placing items
The shape of traditional stair handrail is slope shape.People realized the inconvenience that they occurred instead of trying to solve it no matter in public or at home.Therefore,we broke the tradition creation mode and explored and found the potential value of stair handrail.
At the beginning of designing,we are limited to the traditional form and trying to design additional products for it like designing collapsible storage space to shelf the load.However,it suddenly occurred to us that the transformation of the original form is the fundamental solution.Finally,we produced the right-angle handrail by enormous attempts.The simple form creates more functions like easier-grasping for the old and easier-step judging for the pregnant woman.
