Plastique: Flight Mode


We’re all generally aware of the potential dangers of the sun's rays. However, one of those threats, electromagnetic radiation, is also present in the light omitted by our screens.

This is something that troubled design duo Plastique so much, they decided to design some protective products with the equivalent function as sunscreen has to the sun.


Whistleblower is a visualiser that acts as ‘a candle in the dark,’ lighting up when there is a strong presence of invisible electromagnetic waves and allowing the user to turn off devices or get the hell away from them!

Using innovative shielding yarns, Plastique has also created a series of fabrics, turned into screens, blankets and pyjamas to act like a subtle Faraday Cage .
