Sabine Seymour published her second book entitled Functional Aesthetics – Visions on Fashionable Technology few months ago, following her successful title Fashionable Technology from 2008.
Seymour takes everything into perspective. Firstly, the design of the book – binding and the concept are rather unique. The surface of the hardbook is covered with beige rip fabric showing softness and roughness of the used material at the same time.

Erich Zainziger does consultancy, training and design of interactive fashion, e-textiles and wearable electronic. He’s also a blogger behind talk2myShirt dedicated to smart fabrics and wearable technology.
Because of his previous experience with Philips Company I wanted to interview him from the moment when I decided to cover the fields of wearables… Erich lives and works now in Philippines and runs his own wear tech company Elextile… Hence, let’s hear his thoughts on the wear tech scene…
