Andrômeda Tourist kayak by Luigi Toledo

Home > Winners > #56178


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Andrômeda

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Tourist kayak

INSPIRATION:
To present a nautical product safely for the practice of navigation for laypeople, with a sustainable value proposition in the use of reforested wood and non-toxic resin, combining in a product with long life durability, the project seeks to encourage people to perform Physical exercises, through the safety and comfort that the product provides, providing a unique experience between the user and the environment in which he can safely master.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Andromeda Project was born due to the tourist kayaks needing to obtain technique to pad them, lack of stability and hydrodynamics, considered the main points that discourage the public interested in this practice. Given this new segment, between sport kayaks and fishing boats, a personal boat has emerged that offers high stability and hydrodynamics, weighing 28kg that presents a superior performance to the plastic in the current market, enabling anyone with no skills to carry and navigate.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The interaction with the product is direct, from the time of transportation to the use in the water, where the user comes to paddle, pilot and direct the boat in person to where he wants to sail.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in 2014 and was completed in 2015 in the city of Piracicaba. He was the winner of the first place, prototype transport category, in the museum competition of the Brazilian house of São Paulo in 2016.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Utilizing naval and aeronautical materials such as fungus-immunized wood, XPS (expanded polystyrene), fiberglass and carbon fabric, high durability and strength of the product is achieved. The innovation of the waterproof seat, made in elastic strap, with sloped backrest, of the best ergonomics and comfort to the user. The bottom of the hull was designed to enable the linearity of the boat, even the user not having rowing technique. Innovation in the security dimension was to make the product not submergible, due to the creation of floating chambers in the bow and stern with xps plates on the sides. Innovation in the impact resistance dimension would be the filling of these chambers with PU (expandable polyurethane). Being wider at the stern has greater resistance when turning, increasing safety for the user. The sharper angle at the bow improves the hydrodynamics, thus developing a greater speed taking advantage of the power of the paddling.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 730mm, Depth 3620mm, Height 530mm

TAGS:
Kayak, wood, boat, fiber

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research began with a series of qualitative and quantitative questionnaires, made personally with practitioners, teachers and people who were interested in practicing kayaking but had a prescription, because kayaks in the market require skills, lessons and practice to navigate.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenges were to find material to study the construction system for wooden vessels, use and manipulation of materials that is almost non existent in Brazil. Many tests were done between structural bonding, hull shape, proportion of dimensions between length, width and height until we reached a structural configuration, high stability and hydrodynamics.
