不为“主流”而设计,算不算好设计?

为体障者设计的服饰

设计师:Will & Well

“Will & Well”是残障与行动不便者的服装品牌,创办人林施恩(Elisa Lim)的服装设计有两个重点:一个是帮助残障或行动不便者独立、轻易地更衣;另一个则是让看顾者更轻易地替无法自理的残障或行动不便者更衣。她用磁铁扣、拉绳、卡扣、魔术贴等取代传统纽扣。譬如,用紧实磁铁扣的夏威夷衫易穿,只要一拉就能把衣除下,让日常自理不再是大部分体障者的烦忧难事。

好设计强调以人为本。但林施恩的作品激发人们思考:“人”是否也包括弱势,或因身体、需求跟一般大众不同的群体?当设计师、厂商把这些人的障碍和需要排除在外,设计是否真的好呢?
