39/50 Rhode Island

Human Badge

The jewellery industry could be thought to an art related only thing. Making fancy things to wear. But the state of Rhode Island is using the knowledge of the old industry and combines it with functional use. Badge systems in the field of hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities are often looked at in an only functional way. But patients an the elderly are often irritated with the solutions. “Not nice to wear” or “disturbing” is what people say about the plastic wearables. Now designers are considering to create more human badges as beautiful as a piece of jewellery.
