The Liftcup was created by two development oriented nurses – Linda Legaard Rosenmay and Inger Johanne Overgaard, who both work in the Intensive care unit of Esbjerg hospital.
The idea for the product came from the need to be better at moving patients in a more comfortable and ethical way. The purpose is to provide more comfort and relieve pain when using a ceiling lift. In cooperation with a private company called Ergolet, the product is ready to be produced for larger audiences.
Liftcup is made of BPI’s own viscoelastic foam – TempraFlex®-V8067. It moulds itself to the exact body shape and position, so that you get the support and comfort needed.
Weirdwear creates custom made costumes for movies, theatre and various commercials. All of their products are made in their own production facilities. Their customers are i.e. The Royal Theatre (Denmark), London TOAST theatre and Tivoli (Denmark).
BPI’s foam has been used in creating costumes for two performances – Clumsy Hans and The Nutcracker Christmas display for hotel D’Angleterre.
The costumes are made of different types of Polyethylene and Polyurethane foam. These types of foam were selected for their qualities of being both strong and flexible, so the costumes won’t break nor lose their shape.
Adela Hatic is the designer behind the “Neptune” speaker. She is a furniture design student in VIA University College and has got invitations to exhibit her speaker on the furniture fair in Milano, northmodern in Copenhagen and Paris Design Week.
“Using tactile sound, Neptune is a speaker that adds an extra dimension to the music experience. It makes listening to music not just an emotional feeling but a physical one as well. Neptune is covered only by foam that helps create deep vibrations from the bass, making it an experience to both touch and feel the music.” Adela Hatic
BPI has sponsored a block of filter foam for the designer to create this speaker. The designer has painted and processed the foam to hold in the moonrock style shape.
