OYOP Float - project

The One Yarn of Plastic project is zooming in on textile bindings like weavings, knitworks and embroidery patterns.  We made illustrations of our own textile bindings and engineered a 2D printer as a tool to materialize our drawings. Like a weaver uses a yarn, we use a special kind of “filament’ to create a new ‘textile like’ material. Our approach resulted so far in a series of graphic material samples which all have different properties and qualities. Enhancing meanly tactility, the range of samples allow differences in pattern, flexibility, stretch, weight, opacity, shape and form.

These prints show the difference in movement and flexibility.
