Tatoo Helmet

p

The tatoo (armadillo) is an animal recognizable with its plates forming a defensive shell when it rolls into ball. Here was born the concept of Tatoo helmet … a foldable protective device for the head! The particularity of this headset consists mainly in its simplicity and ease of use. This bike helmet is very light and airy because it does not consist of a single block but in a multitude of small cushions that can bend and reduce the material used for its manufacture. Designer: Julien Bergignat

Jacek Lipowczan

Jacek Lipowczan was always fascinated by the art of Hieronymus Bosch, Peter Breugel, Holbein, and, later in life, by the artists of the Italian Renaissance. Those influences can be clearly seen in his paintings, which show meticulous attention to detail, composition and colour. Jack’s style of painting can be best expressed as fantastic realism intertwined with surrealism. He has a very personal attitude to his art: his paintings are the ironic but benevolent synthesis of life seen through the mirror of the soul. Each one of Jack’s paintings has a few allegorical stories to tell, but he leaves the interpretation to the spectator. ‘ (via Society for Art of Imagination) Photos courtesy of the artist

” After ten years of experience in typography, advertising and fashion, I developed my personal style. Finding inspiration in my own life experiences, in people I met and places I visited, i bring my art to life, combining free-hand drawings with chromatic and iconographic effects, reaching unique results. From a single drawing, many different digital elaborations can derive. Endless, potential evolutions. ” – Flavio Melchiorre
