Awards of Merit: Cortex Design User Experience Award
The Canada Science Technology Museum (CSTM), located in Ottawa, ON, approached the School of Industrial Design at Carleton seeking to develop a modular furniture system. The system was to be designed in a way that is suitable for a variety of visitors and their individual needs to accentuate the values of accessibility and inclusivity in the museum. Personal focus was on the younger demographic, and the challenge was to design a children’s seat that will allow the users to remain active and stimulated while sitting so that the parents may catch some break in-between galleries.
