The Social Network for Innovators in Motion
'Intimacy White' (2009), the first dress in the series, is made out of smart foil that becomes transparent when electrified. The distance of a spectator to the dress determines the level of transparency. This first dress received a lot of media attention and is considered highly successful. V2_Lab and Daan Roosegaarde now intend to make a series of 'Intimacy' dresses, each playing with a different material to create a sensual play of shared control.
'Intimacy Lotus' is a new heat-sensitive material by Studio Roosegaarde, responding and physically moving to the subtlest amount of warmth. We invite one designer to create a new interactive dress with the Lotus foil.
'Intimacy Black' is the dark sister of 'Intimacy White'.
We invite one designer to create accessories with the black foil that become
transparent when electrified.
Daan Roosegaarde says: ‘Technology is used here not merely functional but also as a tool to create intimacy as well as privacy on a direct, personal level ... which in our contemporary tech society is becoming increasingly important.’
In order to take this step from one dress to a series of fashion items, V2_Lab and Daan Roosegaarde are looking for:
