Plant dyed color scales
Plant dyed color scales

Contemporary preconception of color within textile design is more or less seen as a static and measurable phenomena, but in this project the opposite is investigated, textile colors are crafted to be evolving over time. This practice based design research project presents a series of textile color samples that will give guidance to a number […]

A daylight reservage technique
A daylight reservage technique

  By folding and knots, plant dyed textiles are used to investigate daylight and time as central design parameters for the design of temporal textile expressions. The expected out come is  a “light reservage” technique/method for designing slow change, bye making of dynamic irreversible color and pattern expressions.         

Temporal color expressions in garments
Temporal color expressions in garments

Contemporary preconception of color within textile design is more or less seen as a static and measurable phenomena, but in this project will the opposite be investigated, textile colors are crafted to change over time. To learn more about color expectations in textiles, a series of plant dyed garments have been developed. The garments are […]

Let your body print your dress

  Let your body print your dress Fashion designer Laura Clausen is invited by the smart textile design lab from 16th to 23th of April to have collaboration with our PhD student Marjan Kooroshnia. They are working on the research project that explores different possibilities to develop clothing as interactive tools through ways of using […]
