How many times have you bought a drink or a sandwich from the guy who is selling it off a container hanging over his chest? Most of us have never realized that the street vendor’s gear also needs a facelift. However Mario Weiss grasped the niche for this market and came up with a smart, functional and stylish portable shop. Though it isn’t targeting the white collared jobs, it comes as a fresh change to know that every kind of job out there needs a designer’s touch. Mario’s Nebo is a sensible alternative to help a seller sell beverages and ice-creams with ease. Somewhere down the line the designer seems to have taken his inspiration from the penguin and the back pack also sports a design akin to penguin’s torso. In association with Taracell, Nebo was conceived to highlight the versatility of expanded polypropylene (EPP).
Ideally shaped for a project that emphasized the use of EPP, Nebo has turned out to be a well-designed working gear for the vendors on the go.
The back pack bulges out to accommodate beverages while the tray on the front holds the ice-creams with ease. This balance on the front and the back helps to give support to the vendor’s posture too. A hose fitted with valve from the back helps the vendor to fill the glasses with the required drink from the tank on the back. A UVresistant foil on the back pack takes care of keeping the drinks cool. The whole set can be worn with the help of a well-designed harness that not only keeps the beverage tank and tray in place but also takes care of the wearer’s back. Vendors who need to be up on their feet cannot ask for a better alternative to sell stuff at beaches, parks, carnivals and other festivals.
