British luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen developed a one-of-a-kind umbrella with ergonomic handle created using the most advanced 3D printing and 3D scanning technologies. The progressive piece, launched as part the label’s Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Men’s collection, was realised in partnership with Berlin-based VOJD Studios.
The umbrella handle was created from an actual handprint, which was fully 3D scanned, then 3D printed to precision and galvanized to achieve a shiny, mirror-like look. As a result of the innovative process, the asymmetrical handle fits organically in one’s fist and provides optimal comfort and lightness.
