男士内衣 / 内衣

男士内衣

Underwear as a close fitting clothing is the first line of defense to protect our health. Most men don't know how long underwear will last. Long term use of underpants will breed many bacteria and endanger our health. This design visualizes the life cycle of underwear and reminds users to change underwear regularly. The electrocardiograms on the underpants use specially designed water sensitive dyes. According to the fading reaction of dye and detergent when users wash underwear, ECG will gradually flatten with the use time of underwear, which means the service life of underwear is over, and remind users to replace underwear in time.
