Hydrophobic Tote Bag. Designed for the TInnGO project by Ronald Jurianto
Topic DesignSafety and security
As part of a larger series of ideas tackling belonging management issues on buses, this proposed solution builds on top of the hydrophobic umbrella. By using hexagon-configured push studs, storing one’s groceries on the bus is as easy as pushing the studs onto matching hexagonal patterns available inside the bus. When unused, users could fold the bag into the pouch and attach the pouch instead. Being water-repellant, users are given the freedom to keep the bag wherever they want as they are not limited by a wet item that has to be kept away from themselves and others.

I find all ideas related to water-repellent utensils great. That makes it much easier to use public transport.
The hexagonal pattern is nice to look at for the passengers and could have a nice marketing effect for the transport companies if all give-aways and merch products are matched to it.
The pattern could reflect the colours of the respective providers.
One disadvantage that could occur is that if several identical totes are stowed at these hexagons, this could lead to confusion. Perhaps the problem could be solved by printing numbers on the hexagons, similar to lockers.
