    The following institutions have funded our research and supported our work:

    Since 2020, Hannah is guest professor of the Spiel&&Objekt Master's program at the University of Performing Arts Ernst Busch in Berlin

    From 2013-2015 Mika was a guest professor at the eLab at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee

    From July - December 2013 Hannah was a researcher at the UdK's Design Research Lab

    From 2010-2012 Mika was a guest researcher in the Smart Textiles Design Lab at The Swedish School of Textiles

    From 2009 - 2011 Hannah was a graduate student in the MIT Media Lab's High-Low Tech research group led by Leah Buechley

    In 2009 Hannah and Mika were both research fellows at the Distance Lab

    Between 2003 - 2009 Hannah and Mika were both students at Interface Cultures
    We support the Open Source Hardware movement. All our own designs published on this website are released under the Free Cultural Works definition

    Technology + Textiles

    E-textiles for textile and fashion design projects

    Time: Feb 2nd – March 23rd, on Thursday 13-17, Friday 9-17 weekly
    Location: The Swedish School of Textiles, Borås, Sweden
    Lecturer: Mika Satomi

    The course is already finished. For details please visit the course website >> http://stdl.se/technology_textiles
    You can see each week’s tutorial under “Course Note“, and student’s final work under “Final Project

    This is part of MA study at the Swedish School of Textiles.
    The course amis to introduce basic skills and knowledge on e-textile practices such as electronics, programming and e-textiles specific material knowledge. The lecture/workshops are planned to be scheduled on every Thursday afternoon and Friday whole day. Please see the below syllabus to see the detail content of the course. (current plan, it may change)

    The course is not open to public, but if you are already in MA study in some university, you may be able to take it as exchange program. If you are interested, please contact Hanna Landin (hanna [dot] landin [at] hb [dot] se), who is a MA study coordinator at the Swedish School of Textiles.

      I am studying Textile Technology from National Institute of Technology Jalandhar, India, currently working on a project on e-textiles. I would be glad if i could do a project on e-textiles in Swedish School of Textiles as my internship programme.
      If incase possible, please leave a comment or you can also contact me on my e-mail address.
      Thank You.
