Rui Sun, a graduate designer from the Industrial Design program from Central Saint Martins in London, created an emotional first aid kit devised of five different objects. Each were chosen to provide a person comfort while they were experiencing mental distress.

In the kit, a person chooses one of the five objects to provide them consolation. The needs for solace can vary from someone needing to calm down using soothing aromas released from the Purple Breathing Mask, having a new perspective of the world around them with the Indigo Third Eyeglasses, or watching blue ink bounce off a speaker with the Blue Stress Buster. All the items went on display at the Central Saint Martins graduate exhibition, which took place from June 21-25.

Sun’s goal for the project was to help others visually understand the need to consider mental and emotional pain on the same level as physical pain.
