Lineapelle’s Innovation Square had been conceived as a “necessary challenge” and its first edition closed indeed receiving an astonishing interest. Fashion, luxury, manufacturing, in a word the whole industry demonstrated at Lineapelle95 that it is hungry for the future and for innovative ideas. Even extreme ones, as long as they serve the purpose of starting a wide range of concrete evolutionary considerations. The second edition will be held in a year’s time, during Lineapelle97.
LIS showcased and elaborated ideas for clothing that can produce electric power imitating eels’ features or capable of modifying its shape; fabrics shrinking or widening depending on the temperature or nanotechnologies at the service of the tanning industry. "Many visitors came to our space, talking with the exhibitors on the ground floor and attending the conferences upstairs, interacting with the speakers" explains LIS curator Federico Brugnoli. And researchers in charge of the desks at ground level confirm. Lineapelle reserved for their “innovation hub” a location opposite hall 9.
