HOT lab

Wood-Tex­tile Lab­o­ra­to­ry

In the HOT lab we re­search tex­tiles made of solid wood. The cont­in­u­ous fil­a­ment made of solid wood is de­vel­oped here. We de­sign pro­cess­ing equip­ment for wood thread pro­duc­tion and fin­ish­ing and build dob­by and jac­quard weav­ing pro­cess­es adapt­ed to the wood thread with a weav­ing width of 80 cm and any length. The HOT Lab re­search­es the in­ter­ac­tion of de­sign-form­ing in­flu­enc­ing vari­ables of the wood thread and wood thread fab­rics. The in­ter­re­la­tion­ships be­tween the tech­ni­cal fac­tors of pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing as well as the tech­ni­cal and aes­thet­ic func­tions of ma­te­rial and form are in­vesti­gat­ed. The HOT lab re­search­es the oc­cur­rence of the raw ma­te­rial wil­low wood in Eu­rope.
