Philips knit & powered face mask N95
Awarded IF DESIGN Award. Engaged by Phillips to design, develop and source the manufacturing of the knit mask. Phillips had a design direction, and contracted me to help realize the complex 3D form in a knit breathable material. We initially tried to pattern the form, and then developed a process for compression molding a custom developed knit fabric with a high modulus through TPU yarn. Through many iterations of composite fabrics and different hotmelt layups, we dialed in a final material and process to achieve the deep shapes.
