Today I saw the new collection from the dutch designer Iris van Herpen, “Hybrid Holism”,
and I thought with each creation: “WOW! I WANNA TOUCH IT!”
She used amongst others: mirrored copper sheeting, metallic coated stripes, UV-curable Polymer, silicone lace and the technique of 3D printing. It looks cool, also strange, but always very fascinating.
By the way the collection is inspired by architect Philip Beesley and his project Holozolic Ground, a forest of acrylic fronds, sensors and microprocessors. The structures move in response to its environment. I had the luck to see it at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2010. It was very impressive!
