tete de bois design wooden headwear by andrea deppieri
jon and his fidel in mahogany wood
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 element 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 tanganika 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.
