INNSAEI is a scuba-diving mask designed to make it easier for divers to communicate. Scuba-diving today is still considered to be dangerous; divers get lost, distracted and can face life-threatening situations. With INNSAEI, if two divers separate beyond a recommended safety range, their dive masks flash blue, signalling that they’ve gone too far. With the push of a button, a diver in danger can grab their diving partner’s attention. In cases of emergency, the wearer can call for help by triggering her mask to flash red. Also integrated into the mask are a floatation component and a redesigned skirt that lessens pressure on the diver’s face from underwater currents.
Juliette Laroche is an industrial designer currently living in Austin, Texas. She was born in Miami, Florida and grew up speaking French, Spanish and English at home. She lived in Ecuador until the age of 6 and spent all of her summers in the Florida Keys exploring its ocean grounds. Her love for nature exponentially grew from there and her designs and ideas have been heavily influenced by how nature has seamlessly solved problems. In her free time she takes pictures of any patterns she finds in nature, loves to run, go diving, play tennis, rock climb and experiment with plaster and water colors. When she can she loves to sketch and read books on biomimicry, business and design. Aside from industrial design she is a published poet, designs illustrations and has a passion for learning new ways to tell stories through animation and visual graphics.morePortfolio LinkedIn Instagram
