Advanced and smart textiles are dramatically changing design for health and wellbeing. Developments range from highly engineered fiber structures to electronic ‘e-textiles’ and fine nonwovens that have been embedded with cosmetic and therapeutic creams. This presentation looks at the most innovative global fiber and fabric developments in the field and gives examples of how they are used in clothing, architecture, beauty products, transportation and the environment. The presentation will conclude by looking at the future role of textiles in health and wellbeing and the factors that will most likely influence this direction.

Marie O’Mahony is a Visiting Professor at the RCA and was a professor at Ontario College of Art and Design University and the University of Technology, Sydney. She is the author of six books on the relationship between technology and textiles, five with the publisher Thames and Hudson. The lecture title is taken from her most recent book Advanced Textiles for Health + Wellbeing (2011). She is director of O’Mahony Consultancy with clients that include Hussein Chalayan, NIKE, Zaha Hadid Architects and the Mayo Clinic. She works in Toronto and London.
