BECOMING HELMUT ENG

The process of Helmut Eng has explored the bike helmet through the trajectory of three different perspectives; risk, visibility and freedom. By reaching the extremes and opposites of each perspective, provotypes were created to provoke and engage users in workshops. The pictures below show a brief exposé on the development of the provotypes.
