As we are approaching World Breastfeeding Week (1st-7th of August), the UK Hub celebrates infant nurturing with Nurturepod TM, designed with parents’ well-being and safety in mind. Inspired by a sketch of 2 acorns, and the concept of protection afforded by natural forms, the Nurturepod TM is an infant feeding space for displacement locations such as airport lounges. Designed to comfort the travelling family, the pod design gives a degree of control, dignity and privacy, safety and warmth, kindness and space. The idea originated in the autoethnographic work conducted as part of the AHRC Wemobile project, led by Professor Andree Woodcock at the Research Centre for Arts, Memory and Communities. The concept design was created by Paul Magee, Senior Designer at the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare.
