Heat responsive textiles
The demo will show fabrics and other textiles that change their shape or size when heated and return to the original shape/size when cooling down.
Nylon line coils can expand or contract when heated. Combination of these two different coil in textile structures enables beautiful movements. We will activate these samples in demo.
