Location: Hall 4.1 M40 / 41

For the exhibition textiles4design Messe Frankfurt has collaborated with the designer and materials expert Nicola Stattmann. They chose from the products presented at Techtextil fabrics which - due to their properties - are especially interesting for product designers and architects and which are among the latest developments in technical textiles.

Weather proof, conductive, breathable, thermo-formable, spacerwarp knitted, energy storing... all chosen fabrics are characterised by innovative, integrated functions. Nowadays, the choice of yarns, their material composition and processing makes the production of customised technical textiles possible. Additional properties can be added by coating - the textile becomes „intelligent“.

Lightweight constructions from architecture membranes, textile composite components or textiles with integrated functions such as embroidered electrical circuits offer new possibilities for the design of products as well as new approaches in the area of lightweigth construction and sustainability.

textiles4design presents an overview of these textiles - with a reference to the booth numbers of the exhibitors at Techtextil, who can provide you with more details.
