“I really believe that design can change the world”

May 30, 2010

Hân Pham is the designer of the Yellowone Needle Cap – a protective cap that turns an empty soft drink can into a safe depository for used needles.


Vietnamese by background, Hân Pham fled Hanoi’s rule in the 1980s. Rescued at sea and taken to a UN refugee camp in Singapore, Hân Pham met with misfortune in the shape of a dirty vaccination needle. The concept of Antivirus stems from this experience.

BerliNordik presents the Yellowone Needle Cap at the “bright green design” exhibitions.
