Toronto, Ontario – Graduating students from Humber's four-year Industrial Design degree program will present their final-year thesis projects at the 2018 Industrial Design Thesis Show, held at the Design Exchange in downtown Toronto. Students in the Bachelor of Industrial Design programs will be displaying innovative ideas that solve local and global problems and improve upon everyday items. Many students also took inspiration for their work from their own workplace experiences.

 

Some of the highlights of this year’s show include:

  • Solace by Aaron Bavle: An all-in-one workwear solution for construction workers who work at heights and require safety harnessing. A webbed harnessing system is built directly into coveralls to spread out the impact if a fall occurs and eliminate the risk of suspension trauma.
  • Form by Samuel Parker: An ergonomic industrial sewing workstation designed to reduce repetitive workplace strain for professional sewers.
