Kitchen Accessibility Design Contest

Our 2nd design contest launched in early 2022 and ended mid-year. You can find the details of the contest here. The challenge was to design something simple that makes the kitchen more accessible. It needs to be 3D printable, easy to understand, and easy to use. 


After receiving a high number of applications, we decided to pick the top 3 designs. Learn more about the winners below!
