NEFFA designs 'Dynamic Skin' from textiles

Netherlands based Aniela Hoitink who manages NEFFA, has created and designed what she calls 'Dynamic Skin' from textiles. The Dynamic Skin collects and stores solar energy and uses that energy to generate warmth or light, forming its own metabolism. The inspiration for the Dynamic skin came from various parts of the human body like muscles, bones, etc.

Heating threads in the textile cause the clothes to change colour, giving visual expression to the blood circulation. The colour pallet is inspired by the human body, with different skin tones combining with the blue of veins and the red of blood.

Like the human skin, Dynamic Skin consists of layers in which, energy is used based on the wearer's heart rate and circulation. A monitor translates the wearer's heart rate into a LED pattern that reflects the rate at which blood is flowing through the wearer's body.

In the same way that the human body consumes food and uses that energy to power movement, Dynamic Skin collects and stores solar energy and uses it to generate warmth or light.

Aniela Hoitink began by designing five inspirational outfits inspired by the human microbiome, blood circulation, muscles, nervous system and bones and then added further detail and development to those five concepts. (AR)
