From 28 October until 16 December, our Solar Fiber prototypes will be on show as part of the Pretty Smart Textiles exhibition in Belgium. The exhibition will take place at TIO3, the Textiles Open Innovation Centre in Ronse. Our prototypes are working proof of concept designs we made to demonstrate how everyday articles of clothing can generate electrical energy from sunlight. Our hat, dress and skirt will be on display for the duration of the exhibition.
Dutch newspaper Parool of 20 October 2012 featured Solar Fiber.
The Modint website has republished the article (all in Dutch).
The winners of Ideas Waiting to Happen can all be found at Dutch Design Week (DDW). One of the most important events on the Dutch design and innovation calendar. DDW runs from 20-28 oktober all over Eindhoven. Solar Fiber has a prime position in the Klokgebouw. Come say hi!
Super news, Solar Fiber was selected as one of 30 best entries out of 200 participants to pitch for the TEDxAmsterdam Award 2012!
Aniela Hoitink had the (nerve-wracking) honour of presenting our idea, even though the TEDxAmsterdam team did their best to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed.
