3-day intensive interdisciplinary hands-on workshop: it aims at exploring digital design sensibilities, techniques and methods of making accessories for the body within the framework of the new manufacturing paradigm.
The main focus is the exploration of methods of designing digital forms that could be then deployed across the body. More than design an accessory we will experiment with a customized virtual body and strategies of geometric alteration, exploring aesthetic and functional solutions based on sharp polygonal morphologies. The design workflow will include a digital fabrication phase, producing fashion accessories that might be ultimately worn by people.
Bringing designers to think through the computer as a medium, starting from digital forming techniques, harmonising them with the human figure and developing sensibilities for new approaches
Getting confident with the potentialities of a 3d virtual body and digital fabrication
Exploring not only what forms we could fabricate but also how the laser cutter works, which effects creates, which boundaries can be pushed.
MHOX – A generative design studio developing body extensions, objects or systems that integrate the human body to mutate its aesthetic and functional potential. Beyond the boundaries of product design, the studio engages the exploration of processes and conditions of body alteration, mutation and metamorphosis, creating communication actions and educational programs.
