FIL FORMAT addresses wearable computing from the fashion point of view. We develop smart textiles concepts.

since 2005

The French notion fil translates into both thread and conductive wire. Marion Fröhlich, Kristian Gohlke, and I founded FIL FORMAT to fit our interest in embedded systems, communication, and fashion. A prototype sweater that we created in 2005 indicates directions by controlling an array of small white LEDs incorporated in the fabric; presented at the 8th annual Profile Intermedia design conference.
