Smart textiles

For the conference How Smart Are We?, organised by Design Plus in London, STBY produced two design documentaires and creative workshops on the themes Drift and Swim. The first theme explored how smart textiles can help people to navigate in a city in case they want to wander around rather than just going from A to B. The second theme explored how smart textiles can enrich the experiences of swimmers in an indoor pool. Several design and enginering professionals from the industry participated in both the design documentaries and the workshops. (London, 2006)
