INTERDISCIPLINARY design


The relationship between the body and technology is closer than ever since designers, artists, scientists and engineers started combining their practices at the beginning of this century, and with every passing day we are weaving electronics more tightly into the fabric of our physical world. Electronic systems can now be layered seamlessly onto a material or substrate such as plastic or polyester. Embedded processors and sensors for transmitting and receiving information create a vision of cultural transformation that is both exiting and disturbing ― Anouk Wipprecht

"I think we're living in a super interesting era because normally you would have a fashion designer or an engineer or an architect, but now our generation is being really pushed to be it all, to be really interdisciplinary,"

ANOUK WIPPRECHT is known for creations such as the brainwave-monitoring Synapsedress, Smoke DressIntimacy 2.0, 3D-printed outfits for Cirque du Soleil and the dressFergie wore during the Black Eyed Peas live performance at Super Bowl 2011.

UTOPIA BLU came to collaboration with her in 2014 to work on projects that inspire innovation in wearable technologies beyond wrist and eyewear. 

The constantly intriguing aspect of Utopia Blu's work is the embodiment of a beautiful organic aesthetic.  We are realising an excessively playful form shaping beyond the limitations of rationalism with the specialisation in digital design for 3D printing.

 



JORIS LAARMAN  is a Dutch designer, artist and entrepreneur best known for his experimental designs inspired by emerging technologies.

UTOPIA BLU came to collaboration with his Lab in 2015 to work on design projects of emerging technologies as CNC systems, 3D printing, robotics or simulation software.
