︎ Materia (The Matter) system: reusable pieces for creating clothes.
Tool for fashion or creative play.
︎ independent project
A project that started as a user co-created clothing; ended up as an item which is nothing itself, but can be used for making things. A tool.
It consists of:
Two rectangular pieces of double-sided fabric with a regular grid of holes;
two straps with holes; a number of double-sided buttons (sticks).
Those pieces provide a great freedom of creation, since they can be folded like an origami, or wrapped around thebody in any way (that has been done since ages) The origin of fabric and its natural properties, as well as its versatility, were the main inspiration for this long-developed project.
