We featured a high-tech swimsuit earlier that is boosting the performance to today's swimming athletes. This suit ("Germination Day Eight") by LucyandBart won't make you swim faster at all - their way of enhancing the human body is more about low-tech.
LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. Lucie and Bart share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. With their project Evolution they are searching for low-tech prosthetic alternatives for human enhancement.
P.s. We spotted their work in the latest GUDBERG magazine which reports about the upcoming Design Hotels Future Forum (October 15-17, Berlin) which will be exploring the relationship between the human being and design.
