Panasonic’s Office Headgear Inspired By Horses Blinkers

Office Headgear

OMG the human workforce will be able to buy ‘wearable blinkers’ in the near future. This headgear is good for not having distraction in busy places while working. The idea for the headband is similar to the devices worn by horses in the city, The human blinkers are still in the prototype phase, so they may never come true, but we, at Mimi Berlin, feel that even thinking up such an ‘animal-farm’ kind of product is unbelievable! They must have big fun at the Panasonic design offices……..

New Light

According to Moooi “Tegelaar’s designs shed a new light on undervalued materials and existing techniques, resulting in the industrial-inspired products” we only have to add that: these designs are elegant, fragile and they can be the (must-have of the decade) ‘focal point’ in your home if you want to, but they don’t have to.

See an editorial in which we, at Mimi Berlin, used the Filigree Floor Lamp, a long time ago……..
