At the invitation of the TextielMuseum and Het Nieuwe Instituut, local and international experts will discuss the latest developments in electronic textiles. What does the application of e-textiles offer to architecture and interior design? What challenges and opportunities lie in the interdisciplinary research and development processes of material developers, technologists, companies, designers and architects?
