Smart Textiles for Designers
We are on the cusp of a revolution, where the intersection of technology, the human body and everyday objects will become completely seamless. Smart textiles are a key part of this revolution.
Smart Textiles for Designers, Inventing the Future of Fabric introduces the different qualities and properties that can be embedded in, integrated with and applied to fabrics, and examines the different contexts in which these smart textiles can be used, from healthcare to haute couture, firefighting to sportswear. A survey of specific fabrics grouped by properties provides a core reference section and a palette for the designer to work from. The book also examines five different design approaches and features interviews with leading designer and design teams, showing their processes and working methods.
The first book to focus on this exciting and quickly developing area of technology through the eyes of a designer, Smart Textiles for Designers is both a core reference work and an inspirational guide for students and professionals alike.
