For the vulnerable group whose forearms are amputated, it's quite difficult for them to hold up a basin by arms. Therefore, it will be a very big obstacle when they're living alone. We changed the appearance of a basin by applying the Bionics Principle, and designed two extended areas which shaped like a child's arms on the main part of a basin. The users can put their arms on the Negative Space to hold up the basin by embracing the areas and exerting their arm's strength.
