Webinar : Textile/Fiber Design - Collaborating with Nature

Webinar : Textile/Fiber Design – Collaborating with Nature

Is biodesign within textiles and fibers the way to a the sustainable future? What can designers learn from nature? How can designers collaborate with nature in their design processes? In this webinar, three research projects will be presented that will answer these questions and more. Dr Mitchell Jones is a postdoctoral researcher at the Materials Science and Technology Institute at TU Wien, the University of Technology in Vienna. He will give insights into his research on fungi-derived leather-like materials and soft foams for fashion, product design and architectural applications. Designers Laura Luchtman and Ilfa Siebenhaar will present their research project, Living Colour, which explores the possibilities of natural textile dyeing with bacteria that produce pigment. They aim to draw attention to the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration, in their case a combination of design and bioscience. Designer Linda Nurk will present her project, Couture Vivante: bio-grown fashion, where she combines the raw elements of nature with couture through the development of home-grown bio-textiles and urban micro-farming of silkworms. Join us for this third and final webinar on 17 May 2021 at 18:00, in a series of webinars is made possible by the generous support of Kulturförvaltningen Stockholm Stad.

Webinar : Textile Architecture

Webinar : Textile Architecture

What is textile architecture and what could it be? In the research project “Urban Materiality – Towards New Collaborations in Textile and Architectural Design”, two architects and a textile designer have collaborated to improve the acoustic qualities in urban environments. Textile modules have been designed to dampen unwanted noise and are applied outdoors – interior and exterior have changed place. The modules are intended to be placed on facades, temporarily or permanently to “patch” a facade. Today, building facades are often designed to be perfect and facade materials are replaced prematurely. Instead, the “imperfect” and unexpected come in here as textile disturbances in the urban landscape to change views of facade materials and to show sustainable alternatives. Join us for a webinar on 13th April 2021 at 18:00. This series of webinars is made possible by the generous support of Kulturförvaltningen Stockholm Stad.
