combining design, comfort and ergonomics, the series of walking sticks ‘festival’ by french designers antoine lesur and marc venot, are each assigned a personal identity. ‘elle, elonie, harry and jerry’ give people the option to choose from one of the four different characters. the design comes after much research on the functional and aesthetic aspects of the supportive device, in order to help old people accept using a walking stick more easily. the pieces are made from a range of different materials, from wood to aluminum and the varying shapes allow for individual comforts.

  • These sticks look very sweet, but ergonomic ? I’m not sure

    That arm support seems way to low to provide a good resting area, would need to come right under the elbow.
    Seems more like a cool Hipster stick to me rather than a well thought medical devices for older people.
