The Kit Yamoyo — winner of the Product category in this year’s Designs of the Year Awards, selected by London’s Design Museum — embodies the idea of egalitarian design. While working in rural Zambia, British aid worker Simon Berry noticed that while basic medicine could be hard to find, no village was too remote to be reached by bicycle-transported Coca-Cola. So he started the ColaLife charity and worked with design consultants PI Global to create an anti-diarrhoea kit, Kit Yamoyo, that fits in the empty spaces between the bottles. If the pilot program in Zambia is successful, it could be expanded around the world and used to transport other medicines, birth control, whatever people are in need of.
