Out of Sight Drawer

About

Hiding knives from dementia patients

Out of Sight Drawer is a kitchen drawer insert that protects Alzheimer’s patients from potentially harmful culinary tools. By creating a false bottom, the Out of Sight Drawer provides a camouflaged layer where dangerous objects can be stored, without the inconvenience and hostility of drawer locks. The design’s easy-to-remove bottom allows caregivers unhindered access to the hidden implements, providing an unobtrusive system that allows for the everyday care of Alzheimer’s sufferers without disturbing the natural living environment.
