Seen is a collection of fabrics that integrates reflective materials in to our daily lives. By experimenting with different yarns, patterns, and colour combinations the project proposes a collection of products that take on additional value when night falls. Seen makes use of retroreflectivity to help the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source, thus providing the reflective protection of safety gear without compromising style.
