The opportunity to turn residues into functional products, with design and artistic value. Increasing the wellbeing of the User while collaborating with reduced environmental impact.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Conductive Loom brings a great innovation for the textile area, uniting art, technological innovation and sustainability. Its main element is the conductive wire, wich is produced from an environmental liability, arising from the process of making biodiesel. Its major feature is to be conductor of energy thereby it is possible to discharge the static energy of the users, eliminating several problems caused by the accumulation of this energy: stress, insomnia, chronic fatigue, muscle aches, shock and damage to electronic components.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The loom conductive should be in contact with the User and the floor of the house, apartment or office. Or on chairs, tables, beds that have metal feet. If the User is using a piece of apparel made with conductive loom, should use shoes that are not rubber soles.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The main challenge was to develop a sustainable product, which bring increased well being of people.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The loom is made with conductive wires, silk and cotton. It can be made in any dimensions and several colors.
Conductive Tear, Anti-Stress Tear, Anti-Stress Texile, Ecodesign and Anti-stress Tear, Anti-Static energy
The objective was to develop a product that would bring real benefits to the User, the data were collected through the internet and consultation directly with doctors specialized about scientific research performed on the harmful effects of static electricity on people. Prospects of achieving the international design and fashion decoration market, hotel , spas and clinics market.
During the creation process, we seek the best way to use the wire, maintaining its characteristic conductive and presenting a final product with beauty and functionality.
