ONE WEEK ABOUT Creative Heroes Award 2019
In non-developed economies the question of the general public to products and services not usually to the offer. As a result, fewer purchases and the economy is growing slowly. As an alternative try Super Local local productions. In Malawi the designers realized among other things the Care Collection as a solution for the outdated hospital furniture. So they manufactured beds, operating tables and bedside tables of local materials in local workplaces. Super Local provides thus new jobs that contribute to the growth of the economy. And hospitals can buy a good quality affordable products that are also easy to repair.
Jury: ‘Two smart designers take care of hospitals in Malawi, a country that does not have a manufacturing industry or money to, for example, import expensive hospital beds from Europe or America. They also deploy their approach elsewhere in the world.’
