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 […]

Designing Natural Fibre Reinforced Composites – Part 3. Irreversible Dynamic Patterns Researcher on this project: Zuzana Šebeková A series of pattern designs for textile composite materials for interior and/or exterior use, i.e. furniture The project is part of  the doctoral thesis, which investigates the design possibilities of surface, pattern and colour design of hemp/flax visual […]

Soft Sensors and Textile Techniques

Soft Sensors and Textile Techniques The project has two aspects: One is to experiment with textile production techniques to construct soft sensors, and the other is to contextualize these sensory materials by putting them into an interactive object. The research activity is part of the project “Design, Textiles and Sustainable Development” together with Anja Lund […]
