Dreamball by Unplug Design

Seoul design studio Unplug Design have designed an aid package that can be made into a football by children in developing countries. 

Called Dreamball, the object consists of a cylindrical container for the delivery of aid packages, which the children can roll to where it will be needed instead of having to carry it.

Paper around this container is printed with a pattern that can be used to make balls of different sizes.

Here’s some text from the designers:

To the children in The Third World; Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Congo and etc, who can’t enjoy football freely because of poverty, war and natural disaster, having a football means a lot and can be a dream and hope to escape from their poor life.

However, the children are so poor that they can not buy a football. So, they play football with the ball made of plastic bag or a coconut palm leaves Therefore, giving them their own footballs which can give them hope, is our aim of this project.

We suggest this Dream Ball made of relief boxes delivered to those poor children by recycling.

A. Creat patterns that can help making a ball on the surface of an aid box.

B. Activities of giving aid boxes to children in The Third World.

C. The used aid boxes will be recycled as a football by children with the patterns on boxes.

D. By making Dream Ball with the children together, the aid organizations will get the chance to be friendly with them.

Aid box

If children take off the paper from an aid box by following the patterns on it, and assemble those parts with the attached instruction, they can get a football. We can apply those patterns on any type of boxes – a square type, a cyliner type. Now, when children get a cyliner type aid box filled with supply, they can move it by rolling that box.

The football

In the aspect of material, we considered children playing football with bare foot. So, we use paper that can be recycled and its thickness changes the intensity and elasticity of the Dream Ball.
