MORITZ WALDEMEYER

For his spring 2008 collection, Readings, designer Hussein Chalayan teamed up with engineer Moritz Waldemeyer to create these laser dresses. Hundreds of lasers were embedded within each dress and the light they emitted was either deflected or absorbed by Swarovski crystals, depending on which way the laser was pointing. The lasers were attached using brass hinges, which meant that they could also move, allowing the piece to constantly change and evolve with its surroundings.

Cruising around his site, I also found some amazing light installations as well as this fantastic armchair activist loud speaker.
