threeASFOUR and Stratasys’ 3D Printed Dress Oscillation #WearableWednesday

NewImage

How beautiful is this dress from threeASFOUR and Stratasys?! From Digital Trends via Futurism:

“We got very interested in the geometric shapes which lie beneath vibration,” designer Gabi Asfour told Digital Trends. “We spent a long time researching them and discovered that there are very specific formations that happen under certain frequencies. These formations reminded us of prints and other designs, a bit like tribal tattoos.”

The dress itself was created in collaboration with regular threeASFOUR partner designer Travis Fitch, along with 3D-printing company Stratasys. It is composed of 30 separate multi-material, multi-color 3D-printed parts, assembled from 270 design files.

“We approach 3D printing as a source of tactile fabrics of the future, which can have some very special properties,” Asfour said, explaining his appreciation of additive manufacturing. “For example, we see the possibility of materials that are heat resistant or cooling, things like that. Right now, we’re still at the start of that journey — and what interests me is the possibility of different interlocking weaves that would not be possible to achieve in any other way. The same is true of the shapes you can achieve compared to traditional fashion cutting methods. 3D printing is both function and form.”k
