Stuttgart based Designers, Robin Kuhnle and June-Noa Fabregas collaborated on a super interesting project entitled, “Spinning Jenny” (named after the multi-spindle spinning frame), which looks to produce directly in 3D by weaving ropes around a steel structure.
“We want to produce fashion directly in 3D. In other words experimentally develop a three dimensional way to produce fashion. This new technique is about wrapping ropes around 3 dimensional tools and then connect or cure them with different binding materials.
The base of the tools are steel tubes wich enable a physical molding in every orientation. After connecting the ropes the steel tubes are removed and the products take over and become self stabilizing.
Wrapped tubes replace seams and form a framework. By developing this new process we created not only a new manufacturing technology, we also designed a independent, new, aesthetic.” – Kuhnle
Below you can see some of the initial prototyping, as well as the final sample and short video detailing the process.
