Monday Inspo - Outer Space Design [03/07/2022]

Our team thought it would be fun to start out our weekly team meetings every Monday morning with some design inspiration. It's been really great to share design inspiration of all kinds with each other and in doing so - we thought it would be fun to share it with all of you! This week, we are featuring a few new concepts for Outer Space Design. Two of the three concepts were designed by women and as a (currently) all-woman firm, we were particularly excited to celebrate that!


Check out the links to the articles we discussed below:

The Vulva Spaceship, Vulva Spaceship aims to counter prevalence of phallic spacecraft

'A German feminist art group has revealed a vulva-shaped spaceship concept, which it is encouraging the European Space Agency to help realise in order to better represent humanity in space and "restore gender equality to the cosmos."' - excerpt from a dezeen article, Author: Rima Sabina Aouf, Date: March 3, 2022

What are your thoughts on the design of this space craft? In our team discussion, we all agreed that we loved the idea of taking a whole new look at the traditional forms of space craft design. It's also great they are finding this form to be more aerodynamic. With that being said, rather than just moving from one human anatomy to another, why not just work backwards from what forms are the most aerodynamic and developing a concept from there? As women, we love the sentiment here and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
