The winner of this years degree show’s product design best in show award is graduate Fraser Hunter.
Fraser won the award for his revolutionary new shoe design that may change the lives of thousands of people. “Safi shoes” use recycled materials to protect the foot from a deadly disease known as Tungiasis, which is caused by the chigoe flea burrowing into the feet and laying eggs.
The disease is especially prominent in African communities where treatment is both expensive and difficult to reach. It is for this reason that Fraser created the Safi shoes to prevent the spread of the disease and help poor African communities.
We caught up With Fraser after receiving his award to see how he felt.
