SOLD OUT: TEK-TILES Design Jam: Connectivity, Monitoring and Activation
Fri, Jul 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| Free
Join a group of creative technologists, designers and textile engineers for a day of discovery and a deep dive on envisioning the future of apparel. The BF+DA has challenged a multi-dimensional group from eight universities to explore the intersection of technology, manufacturing, sustainability and textiles in the form of TEK-TILES – 10″ x 10″ knit swatches activated by a variety of technical materials including conductive yarns and fabrics, thermoreactive threads and color-changing filiments.
In collaboration with Futureworks NYC, we are opening our doors to a select group of industry leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators to help us envision how to take our TEK-TILES to the next level. Three ideas, based on our themes of “Connectivity, Monitoring and Transformation,” will be manufactured and put on display in an upcoming exhibition.
