Eastman Chemical Provokes Design Ideas

Eastman Chemical Co. (Kingsport, TN) has been working with medical product manufacturers to inspire designers and engineers through its Innovation Lab. The online tool serves as a way to reach out to designers and provoke ideas that manufacturers can use during the design process. According to Glenda Eilo, global industry leader of medical specialty plastics marketing at Eastman, the company is constantly looking for ways to improve patient care and help introduce designer input into the healthcare arena.

If you're involved in the design process at your company, take a look at Eastman's online lab. Perhaps it'll help conjure up new ideas on what materials could work best with your product's potential applications.
