2020 MAAS DESIGN AWARD – RAPID SHIELD BY SPACE TANK DESIGN


COVID-19 highlighted Australia’s health PPE vulnerability and our need for domestic manufacturing security. The onslaught of GP and hospital attendances and news of frontline workers resorting to ponchos and welding shields for protection against viral infection led Space Tank to design an Australian made and sustainable face shield solution.


The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “The all-in-one design represents an innovative approach to providing protection, as does the origami folding structure. This single-piece construction should improve the environmental impact of the device.


The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) Design Award is chosen from the annual Good Design Awards and the criteria includes good design, innovation and the significance of a design to Australia’s culture. The Award is given to a project that has potential to make a significant improvement to the quality of health, wellbeing or the environment.
