The MIT bioLogic design team has won multiple A' Design Awards with their extraordinary textile design, the bioLogic team explored how bacterial properties can be applied to fabric and formed into living interfaces between body and environment, Italy-based A' Design Award & Competition said in a press release.

They found novel ways of using Natto bacteria, which move in response to humidity change. The team harvested Natto cells and applied them to fabric with custom 3D printers. The cell-infused fabric was used to make sport garments. As fabric in the suit reacts to perspiration, tiny vents over bodily heat zones open and close allowing for rapid cooling.

In a bio lab, the team discovered that microscopic humidity-sensitive bacteria can be harvested and used as nanosensors and nanoactuators. Such mechanisms are applied to fabric using custom-made micro-resolution printing technology. This synthetic breathing skin is activated by perspiration and body heat.

The bioLogic team won three awards with their extraordinary innovation; The bioLogic tem won the much coveted Platinum A' Design Award, in Textile Design, a Golden A' Design Award in Wearable-Technologies Design and a Silver Award in Fashion Design.

The A' Fashion, Apparel & Garment Design Competition is a freestyle design competition open to both concept stage and realized works designed by professional and young fashion designers, tailors, stylists, fashion design companies and other business in this industry worldwide. (SH)
