Martin Stricker – Notch
with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei
Designed to meet the needs of experienced skiers, “Notch” is a ski helmet with integrated goggles. Nowadays, wearing a helmet and goggles is self-evident: these two objects have every reason to be merged into one. Visor helmets seen on ski slopes have a bad reputation with experienced skiers who deem their design and functionality disappointing. Based on my own experience as a professional skier, the project was developed in an innovative fashion in order to blend together the best existing solutions in a completely integrated design.
