THE BRETON HEADDRESS REDESIGNED AS AN UMBRELLA
This project is the result of research into the Bouroullec brothers and their work, which is both playful and aesthetically pleasing. The designer was interested in their Breton heritage and learnt about Brittany and, more specifically, the area of Pont L’Abbé, where women used to wear headdresses as a symbol of wealth. For this project, the Breton headdress has been redesigned to create an umbrella, which is voluptuous and lightweight, with a modern graphic design, which creates a play of light and shade on the face of its user.
Bouroullec Exhibition: the design process as seen by LISAA
To coincide with the Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec exhibition at the Champs Libres, the FRAC and the Parlement of Brittany, students from LISAA Rennes have created a buzz by putting on an exhibition about the design process. To illustrate this topic, students are using their research and design work for an umbrella.
