Product: Gardening trolley

 

German disability foundation Stiftung Finneck has come together with a cooperative of furniture designers and metalworker Laurenz Stockner to produce a portable gardening trolley for people with or without constraints in movement.  This experience shows how the fresh and caring creativity of a young design team may help solve the needs of a population increasingly ageing and less than totally fit.  With the help of Laurenz Stockner as producer of the metalwork they created an optimised prototype with focus on design, craft and manufacturing aspects.
