ATOMIC PATCHES / Kids Ski
Project Work in cooperation with Atomic Austria
Atomic´s PATCHES is a concept based on the problem, that kid´s skis have a short lifetime because children outgrow their skis quickly. PATCHES are stickers which are developed like the Tangram system. The seven geometrical forms can be modular complemented with one another, and different motives can be designed. PATCHES not only have a designed function, but they also serve as a protective layer and can prevent scratches and marks. The second part of the concept is the white ski, which has a timeless design and can be reused easily. The PATCHES can be sticked on to the ski individually every time the ski has a new owner. After the usage of the ski the PATCHES can be removed, and the ski can reenter the refurbished ski market.
