About This Project

THE SYMA LINE

BY LAYLA MUELLER

 

THE DESIGNER

The daughter of a New York Broadway actress and a German stage manager, Layla Müller grew up behind the scenes of a huge cultural industry that inspired her enthusiasm for costumes and design. After gathering fashion experience in New York in 2014, Müller completed an international semester in Finland in 2015 and at the same time took on the position of Assistant Producer at the first Helsinki Fashion Week. She received her Bachelor of Arts in fashion design at the beginning of 2016 and will receive her Master’s degree in 2017 at the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin.
 

THE CONCEPT

The Syma Line visualizes sound by using a range of innovative techniques to give each outfit a different character. The project aims to explore the symbiosis between music, fashion and science, showcasing the evidence of how sound and frequencies affect the physical world. The first two outfits of The Syma Line each visualize one of physicist Ernst Chladni’s sound figures through their shape.

THE TECHNOLOGY

The designer used laser-cut patterns as well as integrated electroluminescent wires. These are attached to a sound sensor that makes them glow stronger and steadier as the surrounding environment gets louder.
