This dress incorporates a detector of CO2: when the concentration is higher the LEDs lit up more.

"The Climate Dress is made of conductive embroidery, over hundred of tiny LED lights inserted into the embroidey, a CO2 sensor and an Arduino Lilypad microprocessor. The LEDs visualize the level of CO2 in the nearby surroundings and are powered trough the embroidery! For The Climate Dress we used soft conductive thread that has a similar consistence to the kind of thread used for traditional and industrial embroidery production. This way it is possible to make embroidery that become more than an esthetical element in clothing and interior textiles."

Designed by Diffus, Tine M. Jensen, Forster Rohner, Alexandra Instituto, and The Danish Design School.

New exhibition at the LABoral Art and Industrial Creation Centre in Gijón with In The Air and some more research projects on new urban strategies: Habitar.

"Habitar is a walk through new emerging scenarios in the city. It is a catalogue of ideas and images from artists, design and architecture studios, and hybrid research centres. Together they come up with a series of potential tools, solutions and languages to negotiate everyday life in the new urban situation".

We present some In The Air news: an interactive projection, maps that show the pollution linked with the urban structure, some 3D stereolithographies that allows to understand the events and the day-working of the city in relation with the levels of pollution. We pretend to explode and develope the analytical skills, communication and experience of the application.
