AIDS/HIV Aware, wrapper-riffic!

Posted on 05.12.2007


I am pretty certain that I have seen it all. Thanks to Shervonne for this link.

“Design Indaba update: a condom applicator designed to help AIDS prevention has been named the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa by Dutch designer Jurgen Bey.” -(

You can view a really great demo of how it works here. The applicator was bought by Pronto Condoms and is now being manufactured in South Africa, and there are plans to sell the license for production world-wide.

Now if the wrapper were recyclable, it would deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.. haha.

This is where design needs to be moving: to make the world a better and safer place. It can be done, and small steps like this are just the way.
