The Fattest Gap in Design - Design Week Portland

  • Room & Board 380 Northwest 13th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

AllGo CEO Rebecca Alexander, Chubstr CEO Bruce Sturgell, and Łush Kumtux Tumtum Consulting Principal Shilo George are joining forces to offer this one-of-a-kind event to expose huge gaps in designing for fat bodies.

With limited products designed with their bodies in mind, fat people are masters of DIY: creating solutions often overlooked by professionals. While body positive messaging is more prevalent than ever, the world has been slow embrace inclusivity in its design of physical spaces and products.

This fun, interactive event will feature a show and tell of our favorite and least favorite products. We'll also provide a framework for designers to serve this expanding market in a respectful and thoughtful manner.

As fat people ourselves, we are personally motivated to inspire size-inclusive design across all fields. Here’s to everything from well-tailored suits to sturdy, beautiful chairs for everyone!
