About Enfold

Helen S. Koo, Jason Lin & Jasmine Zhou, the designer of the award winning project Enfold says “Enfold is a transformable smart textile incorporated clothing that can be automatically worn by folding and changing the details using origami and shape memory alloy (SMA). This wearable medium is to assist those who have trouble dressing by allowing the garment to wrap around and fit the wearer without outside help. The SMA remembers its original shape and after the alloy is bent, it goes back to the original shape when it is heated. By employing SMA in the folds of fabric, the fabric can be as transformable.” Learn more at at: https://competition.adesignaward.com/design.php?ID=46548
