A short design and make project inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The cabinet is constructed from blue laminated chipboard that was originally protective packaging on a delivery, which would have otherwise gone to waste. The use of excess material represents resourcefulness and adaptability, and because of its blue colour, is therefore symbolic of our NHS💙
The overall colour scheme takes inspiration from equipment found in the workshop, where the cabinet is now located. Cupboard-19 provides a memorable place to store PPE, such as masks, gloves and single-use aprons.
This was a constructive project to work on during an unsettling period, which will hang on the workshop wall as a colourful reminder of that strange time in 2020 that we all made it through.
This prototype has gone on to inspire a group project that NHS neuro-rehabilitation patients can collaboratively work on in their individual workshop sessions, whilst in hospital during the Coronavirus outbreak.
