Ann.ID is a small collaborative design studio lead by Anneke van Abbema. She has 10+ years of hands-on experience in wearable and softgoods design: from product development up to market roll-out as well as deep R&D projects with a focus on creating new methodologies on how to integrate electronics into textiles. Connect with Anneke through LinkedIn or learn more about her background.

 Technology is blended into our everyday lives, yet most interactions are through screens or keypads. Can’t we make these interactions more soft and personal? More and more textiles are used in industrial products and wearables to create more valuable (on-body) interactions. To be able to make these hybrid products, you need to be able to interact interdisciplinary between many different professions and industries. That is exactly what I love about wearables, integrating both Industrial Design Engineering with tailoring.”
