Livro: Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance

Autora: Matilda McQuaid

Sinopse: Stronger, faster, lighter, safer, smarterthese are the textiles of tomorrow. From the carbon-fiber composite bicycle frame to the cardiac constraint sock and the Mars Pathfinder landing airbags, material innovations surround us. Our landscape, our buildings, our vehicles, our clothes, and our bodies all benefit from these highly engineered performance textiles.

Featuring examples of fully realized products from all classes of technical textilesarchitectural, product design, apparel, medicine, transportation, aerospace, industry, and the environment Extreme Textiles highlights successful collaborations between design, industry, and science. Large, full-color illustrations and essays by some of today’s most influential designers and scientists trace the extraordinary developments made in textiles over the last twenty years and suggest what is to come.

Tradition, technology, beauty, and strength are joined together in the materials and products presented in this volume. Whether exploring space, running a marathon, or fashioning the latest trend, we will be inspired by these extreme textiles every day.

Extreme Textiles accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum beginning in April 2005.


Aqui segue o caminho das pedras:

  1. nada de digitar no Google o nome do livro mais a terminação “pdf”;
  2. vá direto ao Scribd – onde o pessoal troca material científico e digite “extreme textiles”;
  3. vai cair neste link, onde o livro está disponível na íntegra;
  4. basta fazer upload de um arquivo seu para ter acesso a um arquivo do Scribd, como este livro.

Mas o livro – fisicamente – é muito bonito; o design gráfico é excelente, a capa é dupla, com várias linhas internas simulando um material têxtil compósito. Eu recomendaria comprar o livro.
