To combat the stigma of limited mobility, Shiro Studio partnered with engineering firm 'Arup' to design and produce stylish 3D-printed walking sticks that leave users feeling confident.

Shiro Studio's long-term goal was to create a product to aid those with mobility issues. The result of which is the ENEA Walking stick, the world's first fully 3D-printed walking stick. To make the device more practical for its users, the companies researched issues current models presented. ENEA is designed with practicality in mind, and features a lightweight yet sturdy material, a three-pronged base to make for a freestanding device and a hook so the stick can hold onto an elevated surface like a table, or the back of a chair when not in use.

The 3D-printed walking stick promotes comfort while presenting a contemporary design.
