FE Materiality Lab

In the FE Materiality Lab you can experiment with soft sensors, e-textiles and algorithmic on-body systems. The lab includes prototyping and manufacturing capabilities for the creation of apparel, accessories, and jewelry that integrate technology on an inherent level. Beyond industrial sewing, over-lock and heat press machines the Materiality Lab is equipped with knitting, weaving, tufting, vinyl cutting, 3D-printing and embroidery machines. All these machines can only be used by students who have attended an introductory instruction at the beginning of the semester.

Location: Atlas 4.115
