SYMBIOSIS

DRESS BY LINA WASSONG

 

THE DESIGNER

Berlin-based engineer and designer Lina Wassong first became inspired to explore the aesthetic aspects of technology while living in San Francisco, the capital of tech. Wassong’s designs seek innovative ways of changing the analogue world into a digital environment. Apart from her work in the field of fashion design, she also publishes books and shares her passion for electronics through organized workshops.
 

THE CONCEPT

Lina Wassong’s Symbiosis dress is an homage to the beautiful natural phenomenon in which two species share the same habitat and benefit from each other. With the wearer and the integrated electronics symbolically connected, the piece is a combination of delicate design and advanced software technology. Through the seamless interface, the wearer can shift the microcontroller from „listening“ into „observing“ mode and watch the dress change as it reacts to the surrounding environment.
 

THE TECHNOLOGY

Laser cutting and 3D printing with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) that allows high-resolution prints in complex shapes give the design its final touch.
