Barbro Scholz is an artist and textile designer. She has a background in design with a focus on electronic textiles and interaction, her interest is in the impact of designed objects on society, especially textiles as user interfaces for technical devices or as the device itself. She thinks the change of possibilities in material choices and size for devices raise new questions to designers. She believes that the designer’s visionary role becomes even more important as well as the responsibility of designers to raise questions. From 2010 to 2012 she was involved in the Smart Textiles Design Lab at the Swedish School of Textiles, since 2012 she works together with Esther Stühmer in the Stühmer|Scholz Design Office in Hamburg, Germany.
