let's zip together
Product development for the 7th International Design Competition in Osaka, Japan by Edwina Hörl and Raimund Dickinger. Chosen for the Japan Design Festival Exhibit.
The work is based on the interaction between three elements: skin, clothing and space.
"As we see it these elements are as envelopes within envelopes sharig space and function." Skin encompassing the organic body, clothes protecting the husk.
"This second envelope can be transformed into the third envelope: space or room in which we may move freely but still remain protected and covered".
The result is a protective layer/garment/tent that embodies all the metaphorical connotations of Edwina Hörl and Raimund Dickinger's concept: spaces are zipped together.
