Mentor: Prof. Jörg Petruschat
With the Hilanderia digital spinning machine, Sara Diaz Rodriguez is opening up a new way for designers to make textiles more efficient and sustainable. The machine allows designers to control the entire manufacturing process: by selecting and mixing the fibers, transferring the pattern during the spinning into the yarn and, finally, during the textile construction. Hilanderiaopens up a new way of approaching the design and individualised textile production as it allows for precision in using materials thus creating smarter constructions and less waste.
