Heron is an innovative hand sanitiser dispenser introducing a more hygienic interaction gesture

Detailed Description

-

The Covid-19 is threading the entire world making all of us more conscious of our vulnerability as species but also more united by a common enemy to defeat. The virus suddenly changed everybody's habits worldwide, a normal handshake today is not seen as a safe way to salute, however people found different ways to relate to each other and to establish a “human” contact like the “elbow bump”. Looking at these new gestures and searching for a more hygienic way to interact with standard hand sanitiser dispensers we decided to reshape the shell of these objects make them usable with the elbow. Heron is a wall-mounted gel dispenser suitable for both private and public spaces, it is designed to avoid to touch the device with the hands. Through an elbow-activated push-pump it reduces the transmission of bacteria and viruses. With an ABS structure that can be easily sanitised, Heron, encases a refillable soft tank that when it's squeezed by the button dispensing the hand sanitiser to the user.
