Bio-inspired fabric Textile

Uniqueness :The textile can coil and uncoil upon human touch, can absorb carbon form from atmosphere based on the features of leaves and artificial photosynthesis and chances of providing water at locations where oxygen is less but exposure to sunlight is possible. Inspiration: memosa-pudica plant (bio-inspiration). Challenge: To deduce features of memosa pudica, artificial photosynthesis and incorporate into textile fabrication. Production : Two methods; First by compression rolling and second by edgebinding. Team Members: Pradeep Yammiyavar & Rajatesh Nath Barbhuiya.

The ultimate aim is to understand the purpose of existence, as I believe not many things exist because of a reason, many reasons exist because of a thing, term, name it.In the world of Design as we know of in the modern world, almost everything is vice-verse. Particular areas of interest include Bio-Inspired product and Industrial Design, Design research and process, application of ergonomics for better Usability of products and services. Indian art and craft have always been an inspiration as it mostly suggests the existence of a reason because of a creation and not the other way round.
