Designed back in 2010, the sleek helmet will enter production this year, in 2012. Thanks to its creator, Patrick Jouffret of French Agency 360 studio, the helmet displays a unisex design built to offer protection just as much as a standard bicycle helmet would, but its folding feature makes it easier to carry and fit in different carry-ons. Seeing that this helmet is still a prototype, it would be interesting to see if the same techniques and design could be applied in the construction field. Just imagine construction workers with a lunch box and an Overade Cycling Helmet – this could be the way the future is represented. Not only versatile spaces or furniture pieces can be designed to be compact and occupy less space, this feature can be extended to many items and the Overade cycling helmet proves that design is extremely flexible. Scroll down to see not only the photos of the product, but also a paper model and individual helmet pieces before assembly. Now it’s your turn to tell us what you think about the Overade Cycling Helmet.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
Some shelves are purely functional, while others leave a little bit of room for decorative flair! In fact, the decorative shelves featured in today’s post showcase a range of styling possibilities, from the minimalist to the overflowing.
