10 innovative concepts, which will change fashion
International Jury awarded 10 ARTISTS to re-think fashion together with scientists
The EU-funded project Re-FREAM were looking for outstanding concepts to three research challenges: from analog to connected, from 2D to 3D and from linear to sustainable circular systems. The ten awarded amazing artists will work together with scientists on their concepts to re-define fashion and will be professionally support in three hubs (Linz, Valencia and Berlin) as part of a co-creation process.
from 2D to 3D (HUB Linz)
A 3D-based design process for the development of garments with a robotic based additive manufacturing method by Michael Wieser (Yokai Team) Bringing clothing production back to Europe is made possible through the creation of a new digital based process for local customization and garment production: by developing completely new methods for fashion design, like a whole 3D process that spans from 3D design, flattening, 3D seams to 3D presentations, the yokai team focuses on the production part, where there is still a huge lack of innovation. Our long term goal is to build a robot based automated manufacturing system, which enables the production of customised clothes.
