These photochromic gifts come as part of a new research project at SUTD regarding “designing for” climate change resilience in Singapore.

The photochromic shirt contains plant motifs of the native Singaporean sea almond, raintree and handkerchief trees. In the background we have molecules of greenhouse gases in a batik-inspired pattern to remind us of our commitment to reduce greenhouse gases (and how plants can ameliorate the effects).

The photochromic pin comes in support of Singapore’s Year of Climate Action, which was launched in January. It contains a photochromic raintree leaf, and a whistle to alert for help in an emergency, to raise awareness of climate change for all Singaporeans.

The gifts are a unique and exciting clothing and accessory creation to connect with the Prime Minister, Singaporeans, and the future environmental needs of our nation.
