Folding Paper EcoHelmet Wins James Dyson Design Award

Folding Paper EcoHelmet Wins James Dyson Design Award

When it comes to life-saving protective gear, “collapsible” doesn’t seem like a word you’d want to hear, but this folding bike helmet just won this year’s James Dyson Design Award for its unique design and unusual strength. In particular, the helmet has a unique expanding honeycomb configuration comprised of thick paper to protect the head from impact. The EcoHelmet designed by industrial designer Isis Shiffer makes it easy for a commuter to carry a bike helmet anywhere they go, particularly when traveling in urban centers and making use of rented bikes. Shiffer has created a low-cost helmet to address difficult and expensive need to buy or rent a helmet while traveling overseas, where bike rentals are common but helmets are a completely different story.
