BUCKY LAB MEETS ARCHITEXTILES

Today we had an interesting meeting with Fokkema & Partners Architekten.  The student association BOUT from the TU Delft is always busy in supporting the bucky lab and the students in general to get in touch with the industry and architectural offices to provide an insight view and practical related knowledge.

Knowing that we are busy with textiles this semester, BOUT found an interesting research project that was started by Fokkema Architects to develop textile focused concepts for interior use in cooperation with architects, designers and experts in different fields of the textile orientated businesses. The project is called Architextiles and Anna Chris Eikelboom and Twan Steeghs from Fokkema showed some very intersting samples they had developed within the project.

Unfortunately the meeting was a little bit too late to directly start a cooperation with the current bucky lab semester, but the meeting showed that there are points of overlapping interests and maybe bare a potential of a further knowledge exchange.

For now on we would like to refer to the projects website: www.architextiles.nl , a few projects are already placed on the site and on the 4th of April the team will present their results in the textile museum in Tilburg.
