Techno Textiles 2: Revolutionary Fabrics for Fashion and Design
This book builds on the first edition's theme of technologically-innovative textiles, with a focus on explaining the textiles and showing their applications in architecture, design, fashion and art. Many of the materials covered have origins in military, space or heavy industry, but have been transformed by engineers, designers, architects and artists into improved (or just different) versions of objects traditionally made with plastic or natural fabric, i.e. three-dimensional embroidery, used for a vascular prosthesis; ceramic-based fabrics that conduct very little heat and make ideal fuel filters and swimwear; and woven polypropylene, as used in architectural applications.
