British designer Lionel Theodore Dean's wearable art combines lighting design with fashion to come up with a futuristic look. High intensity LEDs are powered by a battery clip akin to that of a cell phone.
That will keep the head gear lit up for a whole evening. What a way to turn heads, even in the dark!
Dean is currently Designer in Residence at Huddersfield University where he works on Future Factories. His design philosophy involves â€œa digital manufacturing (Rapid Prototyping) concept for the mass individualization of products.â€
Using rapid prototyping techniques, a designer is not confined to a single final product but works on a template product whereby highly individualised items can evolve.
