This lack of understanding often causes pets to be abandoned, leading to countless re-adoption processes and, in tragic situations, euthanization. This project will not solve this toxic cycle we see in the pet industry, but designing a product with the same level of integrity is the starting point where we can change the masses' perspective on pets from a secondary part of our family to primary.
I was inspired to create a space diving screen that pays an equal level of respect and attention to people's products. Design that people cannot differentiate between what is humans or pets. Providing the very best for our beloved pets.
In the present-day, pets have a different place in our hearts and our homes. Pets are no longer considered an alternative but our essential.
Although we see a gradual increase in pet products being design with more care and affection, it is designed not with the same degree of intentions and awareness.
I believe our pets deserve a better quality of life. Raising a pet is a big responsibility that many do not understand.
