Designer: Manu Varas

Categories: , ,

Well-lit project is an intelligent ready-to-wear ensemble, designed to provide light in the darkness and give a symbolic feeling of safety and comfort. A high-tech water-repelling fabric is combined with a new smart textile, developed by Pyrates company that improves blood circulation, thermal function and skin moisture.

During her designer-in-residence training, we thought the designer Manu Varas how to integrate technology into her design. Manu integrated LEDs and connected them to a light sensor, which reacts to the outfit’s surroundings – the garments will automatically start to glow in the dark.
