Day 21 – Transforming water supplies through human design …

taliaYsebastian is an industrial design studio focused on human design concepts. We supply companies and organizations with design solutions that focus on human aspects that address economic, ecologic and human sustainability, using design and the creative process to address those issues.  This is our motivation and goal.

Key moments have been characterised in 2011 by good luck and trust. Luck led us to meet and connect with Architecture for Humanity, and it is with them that we will continue to focus on the global and local issue of safe drinking water in the coming year.
Trust in us a young and newly founded design studio by the German baby oral care company NUK has helped us to move forward with giant steps, both as designers as well as a service provider, and together with this our first big B2B client we have designed our first industrial product for better oral health habits. Furthermore, we have offered our services and have conceived solutions in education, drinking water supply and health care.

2012 is our Year of Water with the inevitable effect of contributing to the empowerment of women. Our goal is to establish ourselves as the human design studio in Austria. Safe drinking water is our main topic; our mission is to create a beautiful autarkic device to purify water in highland regions and our resolution for 2012 is to continue turning our optimism into efficient work by contributing to the millennium development goals.
