Grid Patterns and 3D Printing



GRID PATTERNS INSPIRED my final year exhibition project and I am not sure I ever shared it with you - so here it is, in the inset picture (right). I have also written about grids here, they inspired my gift wrapping this Christmas and I have also been pinning these squares obsessively. It seems I can't get away from them! It is my computer science background and time spent playing with 3D modelling software that led me to enjoying these shapes and lately, I see them everywhere. So, naturally, when I came across this collection by Israeli fashion designer Noa Raviv I had to share with you.

Noa's garments feature 3D printed elements which are warped and distorted to create beautiful patterns and texture. Tulle and organza fabrics are used in white and black with a hit of orange lines to tie the designs together. The shapes are full of volume and it almost looks as though the models are wearing drawings instead of fabrics which I find interesting.

Noa says of the collection (Dezeen, 21 August 2014):

"While working on a 3D software I was fascinated by the grid shown on the 2D screen and by the way black repetitive lines defines voluminous objects. I've translated those lines into textiles that creates this sort of optical illusion."
Noa also explains that the thin orange line represents the marker within the 3D software that is used to outline shapes and assists in spotting errors.

The results are graphic and sculptural and there is a piece or two from this collection that I would love to wear myself.

Are you obsessed with the grid too?

THE START OF a new year is always a strange time for me. It is natural to feel as though you need to reflect on the year that has passed - Are there lessons learnt? Can I be a better person? So much pressure! Sometimes I just want to be - to just chug along in life doing what I do in the way that I do it.

So, no resolution lists here although I do still have the life list in the back of my mind. I have been able to cross more off the list which is great!

I took the boys to the beach for a little photo shoot the other week and out of 200 photos, this one was my favourite and we also entered it into a competition.  We are well into summer here and I don't want it to end!
I will be back with more soon. I have photographed a couple of my projects to share with you. If you would like to tell me what you would like to see more of on ish & chi, or if you just want to say hello I would love to hear from you. Please send me an email to

PS. I promised I would announce the winner of the Sleepmaker giveaway this month. The winner is Lndeang. Please contact me and we will arrange to get your prize to you. Congratulations! x

Merry Christmas!


CHRISTMAS IS HERE and we are about to head out for lunch. I wanted to pop my head in and say a huge THANK YOU for all of your lovely words and for supporting this little corner of the internet even though I have been a little silent this year.

This Christmas is a special one of us as we are celebrating Christopher's first and it is so fun to see the excitement in his and Robert's eyes. Even though Christopher doesn't understand much he is thrilled to get to play with wrapping paper!
Wishing you a beautiful Christmas with your friends and family and hoping Santa was good to you!

We had a little fun setting up this over-styled photo shoot this morning. I think we have too much time on our hands!

Enjoy, enjoy today and I will see you back here soon xx
