Abstract [en]

This paper describes a project where experimental product design has been used in order to find out how to create textile products with a double function for an extreme context regarding hard weather conditions. A concept was defined using interviews of professional that daily have to survive extreme working conditions. An overall impression from the interviews was that the use of equipment to manage the exposed situation is limited and functional to fulfil a few important needs. The concept was developed into a set of advanced textile structures and products with a double function and the aim to save people in extreme environments. These structures are general which are shown in examples where these textiles maintain ordinary daily live activities.
