Abstract

This lab coat design is user-centered, adaptive, and designed specifically to an individual’s needs. It is also a professional uniform that is meant to democratize and act as an extension of the organization for which one works. By balancing the concepts of sameness and differentness, this design supports the role clothing plays in creating one’s social identity.

Keywords: functional, uniform, Adaptive
