Lanbing’s Interests:

Design thinking, Usability research, Culture based design, Graphic Design, CAD, Visualisation, film editing and special effects.

Lanbing Xu.

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.

Liyao Zeng.

Liyao Zeng joined the Inclusionaries as an Industrial Design Undergraduate student at the University of Liverpool. She worked on a project to reimagine a Death-bed through redesigning the Hospice Bed experience for her final year project. Through her study and practice of both engineering and design as an undergraduate, she hopes to continue her learning in the direction of human-centred design in the future.

Luxi’s Interests:

Human-centred design and research, cultural studies, graphic design, prototyping, sketching and painting, product visualisation, photography, film editing.

Luxi Chen.

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.

Sifan’s Interests:

Design Thinking; DfMA; CAD; Parametric Design; Finite Analysis; Arduino IDE; Product Visualisation; Prototyping; Photography.

Sifan Yan.

Sifan Yan joined the Inclusionaries as an Industrial Design Undergraduate student at the University of Liverpool. His final year Design project aimed to design a cart attachment for the SafariSeat Wheelchair, in order to facilitate income-generation for individuals in less resourced settings. He is interested in inclusive design and hopes to gain a deeper understanding of the field through undertaking a master’s degree in disability innovation. In the future, he wants to become a designer with passion, ability and social responsibility, like Adam Savage.

Xiaoan Wang.

Xiaoan Wang joined the Inclusionaries as an Industrial Design Undergraduate student at the University of Liverpool. He worked on the design and development of a SafariSeat-compatible work surface attachment to facilitate vending and crafting from the wheelchair, in order to enable users to become more active members in their community. He believes that designers are the bridge between products and users. Xiaoan is enthusiastic about interaction design and inclusive design, and he wants to specialise in user-friendly design.

Xiaobo Hao.

Xiaobo Hao joined the Inclusionaries as a Year 3 Industrial Design Undergraduate student at University of Liverpool. His final year Design project aimed to redesign the walking cane; investigating issues of personal meaning, social identity, and desirability. He believes that design is an effective way to improve people’s life quality and happiness, and is responsible for social development and the application of science and technology. Product design is the main direction of Xiaobo’s future study and development.
