Biolace by Carole Collet

A Design Research Project by Carole Collet, Reader and TFRC Deputy Director, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.

During 2012 I was fortunate to work as a research assistant for this fascinating project developed by Carole Collet.  

"‘BioLace’ is a speculative design-led research project that investigates the intersection of synthetic biology and textile design to propose future fabrication processes for textiles.  The motivation behind this research lies in the hypothesis that living technology can foster a new approach to address some of the key sustainable challenges of the 21st century."
