A COMMUNITY EXHIBITION THAT EXPLORES INNOVATION IN FASHION TECH AND SMART TEXTILES.
Munich Fabric Start, the first of Europe’s leading fabric trade fairs invited us to curate a community exhibition in collaboration with six innovators and champions at the interface of textile and technology. Two days of inspiring conversations with international visitors and textile experts, busy workshops and lectures in the new fantastic innovation hub KEYHOUSE. We are simply amazed by our co-exhibitors:
FabLab Berlin is an open digital fabrication studio where you can learn how to use 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, design software and electronics. They offer access to a professional DIY studio and individual training for rapid prototyping. They presented their latest development using memory yarn.
ElektroCouture is a Berlin based Fashion Tech house that brings technology into style as opposed to putting style on top of gadgets. Their products are just as bendable, comfortable and washable as any other part of your wardrobe. They make light wearable by using technology the way others use color or cut. Lilien Stenglein, Designer in Residence at Elektrocouture presented her Inforce Yoga Collection.
Studio Blond & Bieber is a cooperation between textile- and product design by means of concept, experiment and a strong visual approach. They always prefer a narrative approach to design over a purely practical understanding of production. They exhibited Algaemy, print pigments and dyes from alges.
Mantis Greent Tech exhibited its SOLA Project which performs modularity and mobility . It combines function with aesthetics to enable a remote energy access and a quick water filtration. All is based on an individual energy and water amount by effective technology and a smart application.
Statex is the worldwide market leader of silver plated fabrics. We provide metallized polyamide yarns, textiles, fabrics and non-wovens with 99% pure silver for the development of serial products for end users as well as for individual solutions.
