TRIO is a material exploration that combines additive manufacturing with textiles.
TRIO uses a template to create a unidirectional fold in order to have an outcome of a fashion accessory.
The unidirectional fold is achieved by determining a gap between two flat parts. Once these parts are folded they can not go beyond a certain point if they are folded in the opposite direction then it will not hold.
TRIO is unique and personal to the user as a low poly mesh pattern is generated from the users choice of image this is then combined with the template.
Once template and pattern is combined it is 3D printed tulle. The print manipulates the fabric and it can then be translated into fashion accessories.
