Transformo / helmet from theme recycling


Transformo is a helmet from a project, that took punch remnants from the manufacturing process. Several experiments on the item materials lead to an exciting result not only about the transition from 2D to 3D, but also creates a signficantly aesthetics and new Value. There are several characteristics of original materials are preserved , for example: the shock absorption property, the extreme light weight and its ventilation structure. New functions are also created such as “ organic form” and “ special hardness”. From the anaylsis of this outcome and a inspiration of woodpecker skull, I made the Helmet Transformo.
