Beneficial Design

1 Dec 2009

Seoul design studio Unplug Design have designed an aid package that can be made into a football by children in developing countries. I really admire design that directly benefits people. When I see something like this it makes me feel so guilty for getting excited about beautiful interiors.. it shouldn't be just about aesthetics. Surely this is what design is all about - trying to make life a bit better for people, how ever small the change is.

Speaking about the Dreamball, the designers say "...the children are so poor that they can not buy a football. So, they play football with the ball made of plastic bag or a coconut palm leaves Therefore, giving them their own footballs which can give them hope, is our aim of this project."
