Recent times male designers are increasingly focused on women’s safety. First and foremost, safety on the road. Again, it goes on the helmet. This time – the creative “glamorous” model Luxy Vespa Helmet.
This helmet is specifically designed to ensure that even the most claims ladies were not ashamed to spoil their hair. Idea belongs to a bright new male head of Daniel Shih-Tung Chang from the Art Center College of Design. Daniel gives himself this description to his invention: «Luxy – it’s not just a helmet to ride a motorcycle, but also for communication. Its main objective – to increase the number of user of this remedy. Luxy Vespa Helmet design worked out so as to distinguish the model from the other standard equipment, and make it attractive for women. We prove that style and safety may very well get along together”.
Hard to argue with that assessment. Design of a helmet Luxy Vespa really much different from its predecessors. Its main feature – the non-standard asymmetric shape. As told to the designer, the object of inspiration here were the women’s hair in the style of “modes”, such as popular in the 60s “bean” with a splendid slanting bangs. So Luxy Vespa certainly adds a certain image of its owner’s “retro” flavor.
The colors in the helmet Luxy is also quite feminine. Pearly white, with a pearlescent outer “shell” perfectly complements the bright scarlet and velvety soft to the touch pad. And, of course, can’t but note the top of femininity – the small print at the side of a heart-shaped, enclosed in a circle.
I think the novelty will appeal to many lover of fast driving. Meanwhile, the protective helmet for women has already won the hearts of serious uncles designers who awarded him the 2010-th, while the model Luxy was still only a concept, a bronze award at the prestigious International Design Excellence Awards.
