TEK-TILES

The TEK-TILES project is focused on developing ideas for embedding and manufacturing technology into fabrics.

The inaugural design sprint has challenged a collaborative R&D team from eight universities to investigate new materials and create a library of over thirty swatches that will inspire new ideas for responsible products and demonstrate the production capacity of the BF+DA p.LAB.

The team is also examining the potential for human applications and adapting production processes to accommodate the constraints of each material. Each tech-material will be assessed for its environmental and societal impacts creating the first resource for sustainable technology.
