Nasa Space Helmet design was born out of the perspective how men look weak and vulnerable when they are encapsulated. Herald Ureña has come up with space helmet design where comfort and ergonomics are considered while new aesthetics derive from animating the object to resemble the human more. The inner cap that astronauts usually have is taken away and the speaking devices and headphones are placed on the helmet. There is a tinted second layer of glass that can come down to block of sunlight.
Designer : Herald Ureña
Nasa Space Helmet has been designed with the objective to humanize the exoskeleton where we can view it as an extension of its user rather than an encapsulation. Lewis Mumford, a social critic, once said that when man went into space it didn’t only show triumph but also showed us how fragile we are and dependent on the earths atmosphere to survive. Yes, we couldn’t agree more.
