Many designers have created 3-D printed pieces for futuristic fashions, but until now the process has produced stiff pieces that wouldn’t make much sense off the runway. Aside from the overwhelming discomfort, the pieces required additional piecing together after each print, which takes away the convenience of printing your wardrobe. But the design studio Nervous System is changing the future of fashion with their new innovation to create movable, wearable plastic fabric that prints in a single piece. Using a software program called Kinematics, the team created a folded model of this dress, designed by Jessica Rosenkrantz, with hinging triangles, so that it could be printed in one piece then unfolded to reveal the full form. The result is a beautiful flowing design that moves and breathes. [Read more…]

As an architect, Charles Young would often use paper and card model-making to develop his ideas. He grew so fond of that process that he challenged himself to make a new paper sculpture every day. He calls the models which are forming a miniature paper city Paperholm and shows how creative he is by posting his creation each day. He uses watercolor paper and a very sharp blade to create the fine details. Over time the models have gotten more and more complex and he now creates stop-motion animations of his movable pieces. Each piece takes anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours and he has consistently delivered a project a day since late August. [Read more…]
