'Network' by Studio Aisslinger

During this year’s currently ongoing DMY festival in Berlin, the German design practice Studio Aisslinger presents its new edition of seating furniture. With ‘Network’ Werner Aisslinger and his team created light and transparents structures based on the smart combination of high technologies and traditional stitching techniques.

“The volumes are first translated with software into 2d projections of themselves that can be directly programmed into the machines that stitch the pattern into a carrying surface. The carrying surface is then dissolved and the embroidered 2d pattern becomes free to form a 3d object. The objects formed by the stitched honeycomb structures are fixed over a fiberglass mould and impregnated with resin in order to make them rigid and constructive”, the designers explain.

‘NETwork’ was developed together with a traditional German manufacturer in Plauen, a region with a long tradition in stitching and embroidery. The fabrics are made by the Danish manufacturer Kvadrat.

'MOA' Basket-series by Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau

With her sophisticated glass-fibre stool ‘Nido’ Eva Marguerre received the biggest reputation a young designer like her can dream of. Together with Marcel Besau she now launched a new series of baskets which is based on a completely new material combination out of elastic yarn and resin.

'MOA' Basket-series by Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau

“The basic form is built of innumerable crisscross spanned Lycra-yarns where every route is different, leading somewhere from bottom to top or someway from right to left, seemingly without beginning and end. The outcome of this is an interwoven elastic net, that is afterwards drenched in resin and pressed over a suitable form. Thus, the formerly two-dimensional flexible structure is transformed into a three-dimensional form, creating fruit-, newspaper-, and paper-basket which are solidified by hardening of the resin”, the designers explain.

The New York based artist Derick Melander is a jack-of-all-trades: trained as music programmer and filmmaker and beeing a passionate musician he taught nursery school before he moved into his atelier and concentrated on his visual art.

'The Ocean is the Underlying Basis for Every Wave' by Derick Melander, 2008

“As clothing wears, fades, stains and stretches it becomes an intimate record of our physical presence. It traces the edge of the body, defining the boundary between the individual and the outside world.”

'Filter' by Derick Melander, 2009

“The clothing used for these works is folded to exact dimensions and attention is paid to the ordering of the garments. For example, the sequence can relate to the way we layer the clothing we wear or the clothing can be sorted by color, gender or by the order that it was received. Individual components are often connected together with shirt sleeves, pant legs and belts forming bridge-like appendages”, Derick Melander explains.
