3D stitching furniture pop-ups
Studio Aisslinger has presented the NETwork project in Milan, a transformation of 2-dimensional embroidery into a pop-up furniture object.
The project is a combination of the application of new high technologies to traditional stitching techniques and a collection of edited textile objects. Since Gaetano Pesce’s UP-collection from 1969, the switch of dimensions has been a challenge for designers and design concepts. The pieces of the ‘NETwork – stitching furniture edition – armchairs, stools and lamps – are volumes carefully designed for later flattening with software support. The objects created are extremely light and transparent and they seem to flow in space as 3d textile meta-networks.
