News for 2018/19

Undergraduate students from Fashion, Industrial Design and Product Design will be working with Blue Abyss from October 2018 on the next Design for Weightlessness project. Blue Abyss, whose Space training facility will open in Bedfordshire in 2020, require flight suits for their parabolic flights. Students will consider branding, fit, utility, and potential for visibly evidencing weightlessness without compromising safety. This will include critical re-evaluation of existing flight-suits, and the needs of commercial passengers. Watch this space to see how the students’ ideas evolve.
