Tiny, tiny Gas Masks & the State of Panic
In this Industrial Design Project I focussed on User Research & Testing.
Escape Filter Masks are the smallest kind of gas masks on the market.
They are carried by workers in the petrol-chemical industries & laboratories to be used in case of an emergency.
< 1% of Emergency Masks are ever used.
100% of users are fearing for their life.
Users in Panic
Even with good training, the main danger is stress-related mistakes.
All tested Masks were hard to unpack and handle with workers gloves.
Some Masks may dangle and fall out, others did not fit female or African faces or could not be used with facial hair.
Distilling User Research
into a Conceptual Filter Mask
Instead of leaving the company with a research .pdf, I designed a mask to showcase cheap & easy solutions, that could each be incorporated into their existing product line.
