Scaled version of K5 Phonebox

Scaled version of K5 Phonebox

  • Project Date:March 2012
  • Location:Teesside, UK
  • Categories:Manufature, Disability

The scaled Phonebox allowed Jag to validate the build process for a full-scale unit + 25% on size currently being manufactured out of a new recycled material. The scaled Phonebox took nearly 1000 hours to build and is 1/5 scale of the original. The full-scaled unit will help people with dementia and other memory problems using a new inclusive VR system.

The Phonebox is designed to be 25% larger than the original K5 so anyone can use it, including people in wheelchairs who can access it via the purpose-made ramp at the front.


The Phonebox had to reflect the original design intent of a K5 Phonebox, however, it would need to allow access from all users, abled-bodied and disabled. It would have a slide system mount on the inside that would enable the user to set the height for them to use, be it a child, a wheelchair user or a non disabled person.
