The Chromed AW14: Bionic Bodies Collection tells the story of a love affair between a human and a robotic being. Interactive maps of the internet and websites like Tweetping, Reddit and global energy usage topographies inspired the material palette of wearable semiconductor light source technology paired with lush velvets and chromed metal plating.
