Nature Inspired Ergonomic Dog Leash Design
Ergonomy and Nature
Gears Dog Leash is designed to provide a better experience through improved ergonomy. The leash lock which is usually located on the top of the mechanism is now located under your fingers! This small location change provides a more healthy movement of users’ hands. Furthermore, its elegant design has been inspired by nature’s organic lines.
One of the most benefits of being a part of GEAR’s design was the process. I have learned alternative prototyping methods and had a chance to improve myself by the inspirations from Italian Design.
Our aim was to come up with the more ergonomic and comfortable design by using nature’s principles. Furthermore, using unique materials was another goal.
Project took place in Politecnico di Milano, collaborating with a famous Italian Dog Leash company.
