Furf Design Studio’s Confetti is the world’s first mass-produced colorful and adaptable prosthetic leg cover and can boost amputee’s self-esteem.
An extremely cost-effective product that can transform the way society sees disability.
Existing propositions are either aesthetically uninteresting (imitating skin), compromises the prosthesis’ movements or in other cases inaccessible, usually made by costly tailored production processes. Designed in Brazil by Furf Design Studio and manufactured by IDETHNOS, the Confetti is manufactured in polyurethane to make the product as affordable, adaptable and durable as possible.
One Confetti fits most: endless anatomical studies resulted in a clever shape defined to suit nearly everyone. With internal guidelines, it is cuttable to easily adjust to the amputee’s height and it is designed to fit the great majority of prosthetic knees and feet combinations.
International symbol of joy and social equality, a confetti is inexpensive, colorful and democratic. The confetti-shaped holes can be used for customization and amplifies the possibilities for self-expression. Many colors are available and the design encourages the user to interchange colors.
What once caused people to distance from each other, now connects them.
Instead of hiding, people can be empowered to be who they truly are, showing and expressing theirselves with pride. This project could be the democratization of self-esteem for amputees.
Confetti has an 80% price reduction in comparison with the average cost of existing propositions.
In 3 months of overwhelming sales and a large profit to the industry, hundreds of amputees are proudly posting photos on social media with their Confetti.
Recently the project has received the Red Dot Product Design Award: Best of the Best.
