Sacre Coeur

Believe it or not, this coat is alive. It contains a heart and has a desire to copy the heartbeat of anyone wearing the coat. It may sound strange, however we gradually surround ourselves with objects, which gather our data such as our mobile phones, the cars we drive and the search engines we use when browsing the Internet. The design of the coat started with the question: “What if an object wants something from us?”


Sacre Coer Coat - showing the embroidery of the heart
On the inside of the coat is an embroidered sacred heart that steadily beats and glows. The coat, being a smart product, contains an ECG sensor and a microprocessor, which allow it to reproduce the heart rate of the wearer. The result is instantaneously visible through the pulsating movement on the exterior of the coat. On the inside, the heart glows to the rythm of the beat.
