Led by Giulia Tomasello
interaction designer specialized in women’s healthcare in which is dedicated combining biotechnology, interactive wearable and innovation. Winner of Re-FREAM, STARTS Prize and WORTH Partnership, awarded from EU Horizon 2020, for her projects Alma, Future Flora and Rethinking the Bra.
Giulia offers a new deeper knowledge of women's wellbeing, developing innovative tools in the intersection between medical and social sciences. Coded Bodies is her teaching platform designed to learn basics of soft wearable technology and an exploration of biological textiles. Tomasello is currently a visiting lecturer at Politecnico di Milano. And the last prize she won is the World Omosiroi Japanese Award, achieved this year for her multidisciplinary work.
is a platform that makes workshops available to learn basics of Arduino coding, soft wearables and the exploration of biological textiles. The workshops allow participants to be introduced to the world of Wearable Technology: learning the basics of electronics, Arduino coding, making and programming electronic sensors, developing a speculative concept and prototyping physical soft objects.
During workshops are shown traditional textile techniques combined with technology and smart materials, inviting to explore the potential of bacterial celluloses for textile futures in terms of growing living materials. All in the aim of creating speculative scenarios for second skins, sensors, and adaptive responsive structures.
is designed for companies, universities and practitioners.
