New York Fashion Week: New Movement in 3D Printed Fashion By ThreeASFOUR, Travis Fitch and Stratasys

by • February 15, 2016 • No Comments

3D printing and style have walked hand in hand down a few runways around the world. But today’s premiere of two one-of-a-kind 3D printed dresses by breakthrough style turn it intoers threeASFOUR and Travis Fitch together with Stratasys at New York Fashion Week are creating a new amazing
reality in style and turn it into. Both dresses – ‘Pangolin’ and ‘Harmonograph’ – form part of threeASFOUR’s highly anticipated ‘Biomimicry’ collection and were generated with Stratasys’ one-of-a-kind multi-material, multi-color Connex3 3D printing. A nano enhanced elastomeric 3D printing material, commercially on the market later in 2016, gave the dresses both durability and flexibility – redefining what is possible in turn it into, art, style and many
other industries that include
education, consumer goods, consumer electronics, and medical devices.

“This 3D printing allows for us to turn it into a new textile that
does not exist. Especially on the Pangolin 3D printed dress, it’s of
a chainmail type of textile where every unit is functioning by itself and it turn it intos a four dimensional stretch – up and down, left and right, forwards and backwards. The many high end textile prior to this was Lycra that is a 4-way stretch. So this is a whole new type of movement,” explained Gabi Asfour, threeASFOUR.

Known for their experimentation with complicated turn it intos and cutting-edge materials, threeASFOUR turn it intoers, Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser, and Adi Gil, have continued to reflect the effortless geometries of their surroundings in these latest works. Both 3D printed dresses explore the way in that biological forms and effortless morphologies can be replicated in a style context with 3D printing.

“Our undertaking with 3D printing is to encourage turn it intoers to imagine without boundaries, empowering them to turn it into avant-garde expressions of style. On a larger scale, we want to alter the way folks ponder
of
turn it into and to redefine what is possible,” said Naomi Kaempfer, Creative Director, Art Fashion Design at Stratasys. “Collaborative projects with talented and visionary turn it intoers, such as threeASFOUR, are the perfect way to feature to aspiring turn it intoers, students and creatives the types of organic and complicated mathematical structures that
can become a physical reality with 3D printing.”

The Harmonograph 3D printed dress circles around the body in three spirals, next the geometry of the Fibonacci sequence and optically portraying the effect of a harmonograph. Combining geometry, biology and logarithms, Gil explains that
the turn it intos were entirely dependent on the new possibilities that
Stratasys multi-color, multi-material 3D printing is able-bodied to provide: “The entire turn it into of its first conception was meant to maximize the potentials inherent to Stratasys’s Connex3 3D printing innovation. The interwoven nature of the geometry may not be generated in a traditional manner, and it was significant to us that
the turn it into should evoke a language one-of-a-kind to 3D printing.

“You can turn it into the actual final vision of the beginning. When you are working with tradition pattern manufacturing, you separate fabric of pattern of sewing. Here with 3D printing they are all combined together,” introduced Gabi Asfour, threeASFOUR.

The 2nd 3D printed style piece of Stratasys and threeASFOUR announced during New York Fashion Week, the Pangolin 3D printed dress, is derived of a signature threeASFOUR turn it into comprised of 14 pattern pieces. In this new 3D printed edition, an overall skin is turn it intod by mixing a variety of interlocking weaves, biomimicking effortless animal textures. The Objet Connex3 3D Printer’s precision and ability to alter material properties such as rigidity and color gradation, provided the turn it intoers with the geometric control to turn it into nuanced, deliberately placed transformations in the membrane’s porosity and flexibility. This in addition
allowed threeASFOUR to create alternating states of transparency and privacy, while accommodating the movement demands of the human body.

The collaboration with threeASFOUR is the latest in a series of high-profile style and turn it into collaborations for Stratasys, that have included Prof. Neri Oxman, Iris van Herpen, Francis Bitonti, Julia Koerner, Eyal Gever, Nick Ervinck, Zaha Hadid Architects and additional.

Note: the Stratyasys Nano enhanced elastomeric innovation material can become commercially on the market later in 2016.
