Belt Boat

Rescue equipment

This is a brand new design for a life jacket for boat and ferry passengers. As people board, they will be asked to put on this life jacket which, in the event of an emergency, transforms into a personal lifeboat. A concept that would have been impossible a generation ago is now feasible thanks to the development of ultra-lightweight materials.

JURY STATEMENT

This is a smart and creative idea to address the problem that life jackets keep people afloat but do not keep them dry. The designer has followed a very novel approach, rethinking the concept of the life jacket to create an innovation that goes much further than its predecessor.

WINNER STATEMENT

We are very happy to have been chosen by the iF judges. We were very excited when we heard the news. Thank you very much for recognizing our work. This inspires and motivates us to continue coming up with new design ideas.
