|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.
Are you obsessed with the grid too?
