The Bristle Dress / Francis Bitonti Studio

Posted in Design - Fashion by * FORMAKERS

Francis Bitonti Studio, a multidisciplinary design studio in New York City, organized a workshop at the Metropolitan Exchange in Brooklyn that resulted in the creation of their second 3D printed dress.

They built a web interface with MakerBot allowing people to configure the skirt from a super structured mini to an expanded flare skirt. "We wanted to make the body solidify into harder geometry, going from atmosphere to ice.

We integrated a fur lining in their version to ease in the transition. The skirt can be secured by either gluing a hook and eye strip or industrial zipper down the back seam.

We are starting to think a lot about design interfaces and questioning how much the public is willing to design." - Francis Bitonti Studio.
