Red Kap approached the Interwoven Design team to help develop an innovative new line of reflective Type O workwear garments. Key among the design problems to resolve was the durability of the reflective materials – an essential element for worker safety. Our process started with understanding how the garments are used, how they fit and function on the body, and their care and maintenance.
Working at a warehouse is not a job for the weak. With the long 12-hour shifts, a hot work environment, and constant strain on the lower back from bending and lifting – the workers leave their job tired and often in pain.
The Apex Suit is a lightweight, agile, and modular back-assist exoskeleton geared for warehouse workers to reduce lower back muscle fatigue in the workplace. The Apex accommodates bodies of all shapes, sizes and gender, mirroring the diverse warehouse teams across the logistics industry.
Interwoven is partnering with TKDG and CHF Solutions, Inc. to create a wearable solution to aid patients while undergoing Aquapheresis therapy. For patients suffering from Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), fluid overload is a dangerous condition. If your heart is weakened by heart failure, your kidneys may not get enough blood to work as well as they should. As a result, your body retains salt and water in a misguided attempt to boost your blood volume. Aquapheresis therapy uses ultrafiltration to remove the excess fluid.
Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman, founder of Interwoven and partner in SEArch+ (Space Exploration Architecture) worked with the SEArch+ team and UTC Aerospace Systems, of Windsor Locks, CT, to design and develop a new concept for the front panel geometry of NASA’s aerospace palette system. These palettes are the primary transportation and housing system for ECLSS (Environment Control & Life Support System) equipment on board all current NASA extraterrestrial vehicles. The design achieves project goals including – easy access for crew interaction, repair and maintenance, improved maneuverability within the habitat, unified visual language and intuitive crew interaction.
What we did
Delta Gloves by PureCarbon are connected strength training gloves that track people’s workouts, including exercise performed, sets, reps and weight. All the information is transmitted to an app on your smartphone. Interwoven Design Group worked with Jonathan and Aleda Schaffer, co-founders of PureCarbon to create the unique glove.
