Graphene Jacket. Part jacket. Part science experiment. Made with the only material in the world with a Nobel prize.
While it’s completely invisible and only a single atom thick, graphene is the lightest, strongest, most conductive material ever discovered. But it remains difficult to work with, extremely expensive to produce at scale, and lives mostly in pioneering research labs. So following in the footsteps of the Nobel prize winners who discovered it through their own highly speculative experiments, we’re releasing graphene-coated jackets into the world as experimental prototypes. Our aim is to increase the speed at which we bring bionic clothing into existence by getting graphene out of the lab and into the world by opening up our R&D – it’s why Fast Company described the jacket as “more akin to a hackathon than a fashion design process.” 9 months after it sold out, and half way through our findings, we’re opening up the test group for the second and final time before we disappear back into R&D for the next 2+ years.
