ENEA walking stick is the result of comprehensive research and a collaborative project focused on developing an innovative walking stick which addresses the stigma and flaws often associated with walking sticks currently available on the market.
ENEA invites its users to establish an
emotional connection with the walking stick, seen as a functional, proud and contemporary design statement rather than an unavoidable manifestation of their physical limitations.
The three-axis handle geometry allows the stick to rest vertically on the floor without any additional support. This in turn allows the user to engage in parallel activities without the worry of the stick falling down and having to reach to floor level - a particular problematic scenario for elderly or mobility challenged users.
In order to keep the stick as lightweight as possible, without compromising its structural integrity, an internal porous structure, mimicking the
trabecular bone tissue, has been developed exclusively for Shiro Studio by Mhox Design and engineer @vincenzoreale of Arup, using generative design.
