About this item

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.Designing with Smart Textiles introduces the different qualities and properties that can be embedded in, integrated with, and applied to fabrics and looks at 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 images and interviews with leading designer and design teams, showing their processes and working methods.The first book to look at this exciting and quickly developing area of technology through the eyes of a designer, this is both a core reference work and an inspirational guide for students and professionals alike.
