From the winners: “Loona was created by a doctor and patient to address the need for a well-designed solution at the bedside that allows women to safely and comfortably relieve themselves with confidence. It’s a beautiful, premium feeling accessory that provides dignity and confidence to thousands of women suffering from nighttime nocturia or recovering from surgery.”
“The two founders, a doctor and patient, brought a personal point of view to the story with their relationship to nighttime nocturia, a condition which causes frequent urination and leaves aging women vulnerable to nighttime trips and falls as they scurry for the bathroom. It took us 14 months, and dozens of prototypes, but our final design achieves this high bar — it’s functional and beautiful. The shape itself is simple, modern and sculptural. Discreetly embedded into the design is a generous and ergonomic handle, along with a form-fitting contour that is made from soft silicone which comfortably nests with the female anatomy.”
“So many people live with medical conditions at home, but most of our support accessories for toileting and bathing are depressing, cheap and feel clinical. Loona brings a lifestyle of design to medical accessories and gives people back their dignity and confidence. As we age, at some point we all encounter the very real need to have safe, comfortable access to a bedside urinal. Loona asked the question: can we design an experience that takes this modest ritual and turns it into something more? Something beautiful? Loona is designed to look beautiful by your bedside where its easily accessible. It’s ergonomic, quiet, hygienic and easy to use.”
