Palpatine is a bra made by laser cutting technique that uses an auxetic structure, allowing it to fit into different sizes and cups. This structure suggests to the users the correct movements for breast self-examination. For us, aesthetics is a key point since it should be a desirable product that aims to set its own trades.
This project looks forward to create new habits and awareness in young women about this important practice and change the stressful perception that it has.
Your boobs change every month, touch them!
Designed along with Francesca Poli, Luca Sommariva, Benedetta Beltrami and Chiara Parise.
