3D rendered textiles printed on real textiles
Exhibited at Koln Design Week
Using our visual fascination for surfaces and propagations, Tactile Volumes shows a new way of producing textiles. Looking at how we tangle today between the virtual and the tangible, this process uses computer generated images to create new woven patterns and integrate them within the structure of the cloth. Virtual and real are then woven like warp and weft, rendering an image that plays with our perception of tactility. A cloth is digitally rendered, colliding with recognizable volumes and bodies, such as a head or two hands shaking. The rendered image is then woven on a jacquard loom, or printed on an existing textile.
