Chromatic chlorophyll: Conceptual hospital textiles with chromatic Smart Materials

Abstract [en]

THIS PROJECT AIMS TO look at how Smart Textiles can change today’s view and use of the interiors of the healthcare environment, through conceptual examples of the usability of the Photochromics and Thermochromics working as an information bridge for more isolated patients. The thesis has a practical experimental approach and points out some of the chromatic materials possibilities in relation to present research of the two chromatic materials. The thesis discusses the relation between healing environment and the importance of aesthetics, with a purpose to meet Emotional and Social needs of feeling “alive”, “well” and “included”. Research indicate that nature has a calming affect on patients, therefore flowers and leaves have been inspiration for the expression of the textiles. The colour change creates a subtle communicative bridge between patient and movement in the hospital - “the Rhythm of the House” and the outdoor -“the Rhythm of the Sun”. The conceptual proposal presents a design solution where the colour changeability stands for a communicative level, as well as a decorative and a dynamic level. The textile samples communicate the visual and hepatic expression, as well as the integration of the electronics. The scenario for the thesis is set to the 2015-20, due to reasonability for Smart Textiles to be developed to be used as interior textile products for the healthcare environment.
