Intimacy, developed by Studio Roosegaarde and V2_ Lab, is a project that straddles the worlds of fashion, wearable technology and the electronic arts while exploring the relationship between technology and intimacy in contemporary society. The installation consists of two high-tech dresses (Intimacy White and Intimacy Black) made of wireless interactive technologies and smart foils that turn transparent when electrified. Daan Roosegaarde's "e-fashion" functions as a second skin that transforms the wearer’s body into an interface.
Fashion designer Maartje Dijkstra designed the first prototype dress, Intimacy White, made with white e-foil. Anouk Wipprecht designed the second dress, Intimacy Black, which uses an upgraded e-foil that turns from black to transparent.
Intimacy is a series of fashion pieces that will continue to evolve.
