Rainlovers

Since 2012, ongoing with Esther St├╝hmer

Living in northern Europe, we face rain many days of the year. We love life so we decided to have more fun in the rain. Rainlovers deals with having a good time in heavy weather. It is a series of garments, in which the character of the textile condition is used for the function: The rain coat conducts the rain with a shaped surface, apart from the wearer. The light shoe has a print of common and hydro-chromic ink and has an open electronic circuit. While getting wet, the pattern of the shoe gets a different look and an LED lights up.
