WOODEN HEADWEAR BY ANDREA DEPPIERI
Created and designed by Andrea deppieri, Venetian architect and creative director of newton & son, a multidisciplinary design office, Tête de Bois is the first and unique design wooden headwear, resulting from the combination of industrial design, architecture and fashion design. The concept spurs from the will to mold such a noble material as wood, to become a comfortable every-day accessory. drawing influence from the architectural elements of the “brise soleil” sun-shading structures and working with wooden slats and washers, Tête de Bois seeks to create shapes that curve along a string, giving birth to a unique piece of headwear.
Lightweight and incredibly comfortable, the accessory allows airflow and protects from sunlight by means of its wooden slats which block the sun’s rays. unisex adjustable size, Tête de Bois is being launched with five styles in two wood finishes: the Tanganyika wood is light coloured while the mahogany wood is dark. the slats are made from stratified pure virgin wood veneers, they are then calendared and layered to give strength and durability to the wood. The project is characterized by a subtle sense of humor, starting from the brand name, head of wood in french, and going on with the 5 styles names. everyone suggests a well-defined reference environment. Tete de Bois will make its debut at spazio rossana orlandi, during Milan design week 2013.
