Rahim Bhimani on problem-solving with design and business skills

Industrial designer and design strategist Rahim Bhimani is passionate about problem solving.

Rahim Bhimani believes to effectively solve problems, both design and business skills need to be brought to the table.

In this Pecha Kucha talk at Design Indaba Conference 2012, the industrial design graduate from Carleton University in Canada talks about a project that severs the link between sport and smell. His inventive solution comes in the form of the Ultraviolet Sports Pack, which uses ultraviolet light to kill the odour in shoes.

Bhimani also addresses sanitation issues in disaster-stricken areas with his flat-pack toilet. This toilet system comes with a biodegradable bag for waste and features a tent to create privacy for the user.
