smart tools for smart design »st4sd«
Research + design + teaching + art direction for an educational toolkit. The tools are aimed to generate a better and more tangible understanding of the complex topic »smart materials«. The focus was on creating means to bridge the disciplinary gap between material scientists and designers.
The project was founded by smart3 - an innovation cluster funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research and was embeded in the university curriculum of the Textile- and Surface-Design department of Berlin University of Art and Design.
