DESIGN: Eu Wen-Ding, Jeff Chen
make me! 2017
Safety is the primary reason behind this project. The authors want cyclists to feel safe and respected on the road. It was beautifully designed. In addition to its life-saving functions, we also wanted Lumos to look good on the head. We used only the best materials and analysed every design detail to make Lumos a beautiful, fully integrated, and cohesive design. The Lumos helmet was inspired by the fact that when Eu-wen and Jeff were cycling, they forgot to take their lights with them, or to charge them, which made them feel not quite safe on the road. So they designed a helmet to increase visibility on the road. It is the world’s first helmet with integrated lights, directional signals, and an automatic brake light.
