Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Anna-Sophie Dienemann has developed a line of accessories to encourage social distancing that can be unleashed by the wearer when others come too close.
Named the Bounding Spaces collection, Dienemann's design is one of more than 500 projects that were submitted in response to an open-call from the London Design Biennale and international policy think tank Chatham House.
These are designed to be strapped to the body much like a holster and can be unfurled like a pop-up tent with one simple movement to create a barrier around the wearer.
Made of lightweight, water-resistant fabrics, the accessories are reinforced with the same spring steel wire that helps the tents to keep their form.
