be seen / illuminated sports jacket

be seen
be seen

Riding your bike in the dark can be dangerous. Car drivers may not see you as well as you would expect them to. Putting on your „be seen“ jacket, made from a flexible light material that provides a surface light all over the jacket, allows you to be seen from all directions. 
Due to the lights' specific placement, the jacket indicates information such as the biker's width. The light material is made of flexible OLEDs, a new lighting technology which is clean to produce, energy efficient and easy to recycle and dispose off. The OLED patterns are directly integrated into the textiles layer so it still keeps its necessary capacities.
