A recyclable, folding cycling helmet made of paper has won this year’s international James Dyson Award.

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates university student invention to inspire the next generation of design engineers.

The EcoHelmet, invented by New York design graduate Isis Shiffer, is made using a lattice shape that means it can fold up into a compact design about the size of a banana, while protecting cyclists as well as a typical helmet.

Designer Isis Shiffer is delighted with the win but admits that a paper helmet may be a “tough sell”.

She describes herself as an “ardent but slow” cyclist and came up with the idea when she was using bike-sharing schemes around the world.
