Design op maat

For someone with diabetes, it is not easy to inject insulin in plain sight, in a restaurant or other public place. The same old questions and comments make some people – especially women – even avoid restaurant visits.
After a series of enriching conversations, material research and try outs, Studio AMC designed a fashionable dress with a simple yet subtle system incorporated to give these female diabetes patients the comfort they need.

‘DESIGN OP MAAT’ is an open source project in cooperation with MADfaculty (Genk) and product designer Ollivier Piqueray, and the garment was tailored by Liselotte Van de Casteele.
