The design of the exhibition sought to enhance understanding of a myriad of highly inventive technical textiles and their applications, in disciplines including aeronautics, medicine, apparel, sports, agriculture, transportation, and civil engineering. The design concept was developed into a series of 3D stainless steel frames to provide a flexible armature in which to view the objects.
