The Four Essential Pillars for Design Excellence

The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Enhancement of Human Lifestyle

Enabling city residents to easily camp with limited equipment and knowledge in an eco-conscious manner.

 

Human-Interaction & User-Centric Design

Focused on user needs, PAKK includes all necessary cooking equipment to ease the process of cooking and improving the overall camping experience.

Ergonomics & Human Factors Design

Accounting for the 97.5%ile male and 2.5%ile female, the unit provides comfort in a rugged environment.

Sustainability & Social Responsibility

The promotion of ParkBus and bicycles on campgrounds reduces vehicle use on park grounds. Features help users practice "leave no trace" camping methods.

pakk - Evolving the Camping Experience

Project Statement

Pakk is an eco-conscious camp cooking unit for individuals who have limited equipment and experience. Provincial and national parks across Canada have seen a drastic increase in park visitors due to social media trends and the current Covid-19 pandemic. Traffic congestion, increase in waste, human traffic and poor camping etiquette are all putting strain on both the park staff and its environment. Pakk is a rentable unit which promotes the use of bicycles on park grounds while providing campers with reliable equipment to encourage a leave no trace camping practice.
