Aren't these convalescing aids designed by Dutch designer Damian O'Sullivan just great. They were nominated for an award in the body category this year for the Danish Index Awards. Designed to restore a sense of dignity where plastic aids fall short, these aids are all made from porcelain...fragile yet strong, an intentional idea the designer hoped would echo the physical state of the user.

Oh and love the smirk on the old dude's face.
