NYU Student's "Eight" Bubble Dress is an Air-Purification System You Wear
When you live in New York City, it’s tempting to live in a bubble. Thank heavens the Inhabitat crew ventured off New York Design Week’s beaten path (read: the International Contemporary Furniture Fair ) to bring us a “bubble” dress that could prove mighty handy on Gotham’s polluted streets. Designed by Hana Marie Newman , a student at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program , the “Eight” protects its wearer from a toxic environment that’s too close for comfort.
