LED-Powered Climate Dress Monitors Pollution

The Climate Dress, which made its public appearance at the Bright Green Expo in Copenhagen, brought together diverse talents, including fashion designer Tine M. Jensen, the Danish Design School, the Alexandra Institute, and the embroiderers at Forster Rohner.

This LED-Powered Climate Dress monitors pollution and displays a health warning based on local air quality. Hundreds of LEDs are knitted into this dress, linked to a microprocessor and a carbon dioxide detection unit. The lights pulsate based on the local carbon levels – the faster the pulse, the more dangerous the air conditions.

It was designed to generate awareness of environmental issues through an “aesthetic representation of environmental data,” according to Michel Guglielmi and Hanne Louise Johannesen of Diffus.” Different light patterns are staged as dramatic ‘micro events’ embedded into clothes,” they add. “They diligently and without concession tell us disturbing stories wrapped into a comfortable and reassuring cocoon de luxe.”
