As an expert in my field, I regularly write about future textiles & design. Here is a flavour of my work as a stringer for WGSN,  a trend-analysis and research service providing creative and business intelligence for the apparel, style, design and retail industries.

Architectural Knitted Surfaces

“WGSN reports from the Architectural Knitted Surfaces workshop recently held at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Tel Aviv, which offered a cutting-edge insight into interactive knitted surfaces. With the increasing role of smart textiles in architecture, the Architectural Knitted Surfaces workshop brought together architects and interior and textile designers to highlight recent developments in intelligent knitting. The five-day workshop was led by architects Ayelet Karmon and Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen, together with Amir Cang and Eyal Sheffer from the Knitting Laboratory, in collaboration with Amir Marcowitz and Yair Reshef for their expertise in interaction design.”

“WGSN reports from the Future Textiles conference in Copenhagen, exploring innovative projects within smart and interactive textiles from some of the key researchers in the field. Organised by the Centre for Textile Research in Copenhagen, the one-day conference gathered the Scandinavian textile community to discuss the evolution of future textiles. Exploring materials that are smart, intelligent, responsive and interactive, key researchers and academics in the field presented their thoughts and projects as a way to question and inspire the industry. With growing importance of textiles within interior and architectural applications, we explore some of the key points raised at the conference, grouped in three areas: (1) Responsive and interactive textiles (2)Textiles in architecture (3) Bio and recyclable textiles.”
