Philips and Hussein Chalayan – Clothes that show the emotion of the wearer

23:30 § 1 Comment

Philips Design has developed dynamic garments as part of the ongoing SKIN exploration research into the area known as ‘emotional sensing‘.


Clive van Heerden, Senior Director of design-led innovation at Philips Design says:

“the SKIN probe has a much wider context than just garments. As our media becomes progressively more virtual, an opportunity is emerging for us to completely rethink our interaction with products and content. A garment can be a highly complex interactive electronic or biochemical device. We are experimenting with devices that are more responsive to subtle triggers like sensuality, affection and sensation.”
