Product Development - Siren

A project with milliner Leo Carlton to translate his ideas and illustrations to 3D. I worked closely with Leo to ensure that every detail was as he envisioned. I designed a working mechanical spine for the wings hat, using a description of how Leo wanted the hats to move to create a pedal system to synchronise the movement of the outer spines.

Bearing in mind the materials of the final product the designs were developed to integrate extra parts for support and stability. the designs also needed to be broken down into pieces to save money in the printing process (the hats were later assembled by hand).
