A current project for a ‘smart panoply’ arouses a theoretical and critical thinking about this body apparatus engaged in the design and reception of ambiance as a Stimmung. A dialectic echo between the futuristic avant-garde, the philosophy of Georg Simmel and our actuality reveals the aesthetic experience and the political implication inherent to this artifact intermediate to the person and his milieu: the garment. L’ambiance portée, the one we wear and that carries us, expresses this and opens up an horizon.
