Doctors and their uniforms can sometimes look intimidating to patients, especially children. This is particularly true when doctors are wearing sterile mask. Because of this, Amsterdam and Tokyo-based product, textile, and interior design studio Samira Boon decided to make sterile masks more playful. They say that their mask is no longer masking, but transforming the part of the face it is hiding. Currently there are 15 types of masks, varying from animals and human snouts, to zippers.
