NEW YORK, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Design Justice, when Good Design helps the underserved and the planet.
SEEUS95 change the future of face masks so they don’t pollute the environment, include the underserved deaf and hard of hearing, and give people back their humanity by redesigning faces. The SEEUS95 transparent respirator is a radical alternative to face masks. It’s reusable transparent soft silicone and it adheres to your face so you can even wear it without a headband or earrings! The face mask hasn’t changed in 100 years and we aim to revolutionize the face mask industry with superhero transparency and design.
Originally invented in a kitchen during the 2020 pandemic lockdown in manhattan. After struggling to develop the design during the pandemic industry challenges, the Korean founder and CEO Alice Min Soo Chun invented and mass-produced and delivered the transparent SEEUS95 mask to thousands of Kickstarters who supported their campaign. We believe GOOD Design should protect and celebrate our faces. This is innovation at its best by problematizing the solution instead of looking for a solution to a problem. We’ve seen injustices happen with masks, starting with catastrophic waste with 129 BILLION masks thrown into landfills each year. Most N95 masks are made from polypropylene which lasts over 450 years in the oceans. Our faces, our emotions and our smiles matter.
A panel of prominent Fast Company editors and journalists selected winners and runners-up from more than 2,997 entries.
