NETwork transforms two dimensional embroidery into pop-up furniture objects. The new design project by Studio Aisslinger combines high tech technologies and traditional stitching techniques into the captivating collection you see here. Perfectly put on its website, Â ”…design evolution is always a matter of empirical experiment, materials and technology – for this exhibition we worked with a hidden traditional stitching textile technology which we transformed into a 2D-to-3D-furniture pop-up concept..”
So how is it done? The volumes are translated with software into two dimensional projections of themselves that can be programmed into machines that stitch the pattern into a carrying surface. The surface is then dissolved and the embroidered 2d patterns becomes a 3d object. The shapes formed by the stitched honeycomb structures are fitted over fiberglass molds and injected combined with resin to make them rigid and stable. The result is the unique collection you see here.
