Lanbing Xu joined the Inclusionaries as a year 3 Industrial Design Undergraduate student at the University of Liverpool. She is worked on improving the design of a bariatric dental chair as her final year project. Through exploring the experience of obese patients getting oral care services, she aimed to improve the dental chair, with a focus on usability and desirability. She strives to be a responsible and professional designer, fighting for the ease of use and comprehensibility of products, designing to make users feel pleasure and meaning, innovating for the development of science and technology, and committing to the combination of design and culture. She will take this as the goal to study further in the future.

Luxi Chen joined the Inclusionaries as an Industrial Design Undergraduate student at the University of Liverpool. The project she working on during her final-year was titled ‘The Inclusive Design Paradox’. She identified a wide range of Psychosocial exclusions happening ‘by design’, and then choose one scenario to redesign. Luxi has a passion for both humanities and social and cultural studies as well as design, and adheres to the responsibility and status of designers in the close relationship between humanities and design. This could always be the aim and impetus of her future development.
