The sewing machines of the future

The development of the design (in all fields) during the centuries is an interesting process. The concept for the look of the sewing machine has also changed during that time and now we'll take a look at our top 5 favorite innovative designs, presented during the last years, because they determine the future trends in sewing machines' design:


Alto - the Intuitive Sewing Machine

The prototype was developed in 2012 by Sarah Dickins - a designer from Loughborough university, who created an innovative touch-controlled sewing machine, simplying speed control by eliminating the pedal and also guiding the user through threading. Sarah was a participant in an international student design competition running in 18 countries - the James Dyson Award - which aim mission is to 'encourage emerging designers to create, challenge, and invent' and to 'design something that solves problems'. So, Dickins has developed a simplified version of the iconic Singer machine, which even a beginner could easily manage to use.

Leitfaden - the Color-Matching Sewing Machine

The invention made by German designers Monika Jakubek and Anna Müller in 2009/2010 combines a sewing machine and a yarn printer. The user should just 'show' up the color he/she wants at the top of the machine (where there is a small camera) and the Leitfaden's pneumatic JetAir-system prints the quick-drying ink, while sewing. Easy, effective, quick - a great helper for all sewing projects.

Sewing Machine - Brian Kang's futuristic concept

The machine's designer Brian Tae Yoon Kang is 'fascinated by the creative possibilities in constructing a convincing reality'. So, Brian has created a product with an organic form, which aim is to make the sewing experience more enjoyable, expressing the creative process better. It brings some kind of space-age-alien-presence feeling.
