PROSPECTIVE | Biolace

“We address the problems of tomorrow not with today’s tools but with the tools of tomorrow. This is what we call progress.” Kevin Kelly

This quote opens the video unveiling « Biolace », a speculative research project focused on design. The project analyses the possible connections between synthetic biology and textile design, in order to anticipate the future process of textile-making.
Designer/researcher and Deputy Director of the Textile Futures Research Centre of Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Carole Collet invites us to project ourselves into 2047.

What if the textile of the future allowed strawberry plants to produce lace with their roots? Visit the 1.618 Sustainable Luxury Guide, here.
