The d.talents fund

Projects sponsored by d.talents
For all students or young working people, for anyone who lives in 10 m² or is constantly moving, PopUp Moi provides a range of furniture made a near home, easy to transport, easy to assemble and dismantle. The first PopUp Moi range consists of three basic items: table, seats, and bed.
A luminous bedside table to make life easier for older people. With age, habits change: some older people need to get up several times a night, are light sleepers, or are bedridden. The bed environment is not always geared to these needs. Lumaïna tackles this problem by providing older people everything they need at their bedside.
A music box designed for older people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Several studies have shown the remarkable benefits of music for people with dementia. However, they often have no access to music. Eco tackles this challenge by making music accessible to residents through simple ergonomics and a smart system that adapts to their habits.
