In the making: designing with smart textiles
2010 (English)In: Nordic Textile Journal, ISSN 1404-2487, no 2, 14-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
The past decade has seen an increasing interest in our small-scale experimental
textiles at the design lab at the Swedish School of Textiles. Representatives
from various industries and professions have visited to find out more about
our so called smart textiles and to collect product samples. We want to
encourage designers to work directly with the textile material in the design
process to enlarge the understanding for how to design with smart textile
materials. Weand we are currently working to develop a collection of samples
of “smart textile sample collection ́s for designers to use and work with,
enabling them to better understand the great potential of smart textiles.
This article also describes some new design variables regarding dynamic
textile patterns; a result from the thesis Designing Dynamic Textile
Patterns (Worbin 2010).
