A climate of innovation
Maintaining comfortable levels of temperature
and humidity in the microclimate that exists
between materials and the human body.
The thermal activity in the space between the material and the body; perceived as coolness or warmth.
The amount of water vapour in the air found within the material and around the body; perceived as levels of humidity.
The ability of material to retain its original qualities unimpaired by heat and moisture; perceived as a clean look, feel and scent.
The relationship between stress and strain within a material that has been compressed by 10%; represented as slopes of varying steepness.
The movement of water vapour within and around the material; the speed and direction at which it is absorbed and released.
The rate and direction at which temperature spreads within and around the material; the time and space in which heat is retained or lost.
