KinematicsDress

No Assembly Required

Ever wondered if clothing would ever be made to fit the three-dimensional you? Not just the flat version of you that measuring tapes reveal? Somerville, MA, design studio Nervous System used Kinematics, their 4D printing system for generating complex, foldable forms, to create this beautiful dress to accomplish just that. It was created in 3D, directly from body scans, and requires absolutely no assembly. And it can legitimately be considered a work of art, as the Museum of Modern Art acquired both the dress and the software used to create it for their permanent collection.
