Azuma House t shirt by Lee Frangiamore

£ 29.00

Architecture is probably the key creative influence on people's lives; we are all surrounded by it. It is probably the case that there are only two types of architecture - good architecture and bad architecture. Azuma House by Tadao Ando was built in 1976 in Osaka - daring successful and very influential. Lee's design is intended to deliver a visual analysis of the effect of the light well that delivers the house's illumination and contact with its surroundings, for the people within it.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
