title Sewing Pneumatic Textures - three-dimensional digital design based on the craft of dressmaking
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 115-124
summary This project explores a novel approach to digitally designing pneumatic membrane structures, utilizing traditional sewing methods from dressmaking. These sewn fabric manipulation techniques are commonly used to fit flat non-stretchy fabrics around the curvature of the body. The goal is to adapt these methods to create, shape, texture, and articulation on the pneumatic surfaces. This is in contrast with other research that is interested in creating smooth minimal surfaces with complex paneling patterns. The expression of textures explore engagement with tactility, addressing desires of playful touch and comfort within the built environment. Computer software for the fashion industry is used in the design process. The software has built in simulations and works with CAD-CAM software to produce patterns, which streamlines production and fabrication. The prototypes produced test the possibilities of these methods of sewing and the physical outputs for shape, tactility, and aesthetics.
