Lifewall by Michael Scott Jones
Lifewall seeks to ameliorate many of the issues faced in emergency potable water supply due to a natural disaster event. By taking a human-centred industrial design approach, key performance features such as manual handling, usability, integration into the local environment and resilience along with desirability have been addressed. This heuristic design approach has led to an emergency water storage system with a modular product architecture, which maximises water resource survivability and improves utility before and after a disaster event. The Lifewall system automatically filters all water in the home and stores it for an emergency through daily use of the living space.
