Joanna Berzowska was one of the first personalities I got to know at the begin of my wearable technology dedication. She is one of the pioneers in the wearable electronic space, creating insightful and highly innovative technologies and designs over the past seven years.
Joanna founded XS Labs in 2002, in her first year at Concordia University, positioning XS Lab as a design research studio with focus on innovation in electronic textiles and reactive garments.
At the center of research at XS Labs is the development of enabling technologies, methods and materials in the form of soft electronic circuits and composite fibers — as well as the exploration of the expressive potential of soft reactive structures.
To list down all the innovative, inspirational work Joanna and her XS Lab team has made over these past seven year would result in a very long blog posting but fortunately, Joanna did this work very nicely in form of gorgeous looking and highly informative catalog in PDF format titled ‘XS Labs – Seven years of design research and experimentation in electronic textiles and reactive garments’.
This 70 page catalog is a must read for wearable technologists and is certainly a great enrichment for students supporting their research studies in field of wearable technology.
Get the catalog – load it on your tablet and have it at your fingertips wherever you go.
Congratulation to Joanna and the XS Lab team for sharing seven years of amazing work.
