Become a Human Chameleon with Chromosonic Fabric

Kathleen Gudas

One of the most fascinating things about the animal kingdom is its innate ability to "blend in." These masters of disguise are biologically hard-wired to conceal themselves in their natural surrounding, using this  as a survival mechanism to avoid the unsolicited recognition from a potential predator. Bringing this natural phenomenon to fashion, Judit Eszter Karpati is a Budapest-based textile designer that has drastically pushed the boundaries of what fabric can be.

TED Talk Series: Art, Science, and Green Technology

Kathleen Gudas

The motto of TED Talks is "Ideas Worth Spreading." I love this short yet all-encompassing statement. It embodies the power of a single thought and how an idea can snowball into a movement. On a personal level, each TED Talk sheds a little light on the passions and beliefs of each speaker. With the help of some eloquent TED Talk speakers, I hope to show you what we at Cerebella Design are truly passionate about: the marriage of art, science, and green technology.

Ioncell-F: The Transformation of Wood Cellulose into an Eco-Textile

Kathleen Gudas

Attention to all eco-concious designers! A new textile called Ioncell-F has emerged that will serve as a sustainable alternative to cotton and viscose (IOM3). Discovered in November 2013 during   a collaboration between Scandinavian art and science university students, this innovative textile is a more ecological option because it requires less water and arable land during its production phase than traditional textiles. As stated by researcher Michael Hummel of Aalto University, "the production volumes of cotton cannot keep growing due to the volumes of water and cultivation area it demands" (Aalto). Due to the ever-increasing imbalance between the demand for textile production and the available resources, Ioncell-F could be a great way to offset this tipping scale.
