the utope project
Smart fashion of the future
„the utope project“ approaches a textile utopia: The exterior of clothing becomes a display. This creates the possibility to change its surface like a chameleon´s skin or to use it like a computer display.
The Austrian Designer Wolfgang Langeder and the Fraunhofer IZM / Stretchable Circuits in Berlin, have joined forces since january 2010 to develop such an innovative display on clothing.
The first result of their cooperation is „ Cybernomade Suit“, an intelligent business suit. The integrated display interacts with a smart phone put within a pocket on the inside of the jacket and indicates a call or sms on its surface.
The main objective of this cooperation is to create a smart urban wear product line for men.
„the utope project“ conceives itself as a laboratory for fashion, in which intelligent design merges with our time´s most innovative technologies in order to create something thoroughly new and future oriented for clothing and fashion.
