The ‘Origami’ face shield is a customizable piece of protective equipment that will work to keep users safe from pathogens and eliminate their own spread of viruses to boot. Designed by Jake Rynkiewicz, the face shield is crafted from thin plastic components that can be easily cleaned between uses and recycled once it has reached end of life. The face covering doesn’t have any elastic components, but instead conforms around the wearer’s head using an adjustable plastic strap.
8,000 of the ‘Origami’ face shields have been produced for Brazilian hospitals and is focused on a widely scalable design. This will enable businesses to simply purchase the design of the facial covering to produce it as required for businesses and organizations alike.
