Milan Design Week 2019, Alcova Sassetti
In the project Post - Process, handwoven textiles give character to garments that offer intimate space for the wearer but also have their own life as sculptural objects. Post - Process dialogues with Ondula, a collection of light and mobile furnishings by Flatwig Studio designed from corrugated metal sheet, an industrial element commonly used for roof coverings.
The same principles and values give life to Ondula and Post - Process: in both projects the designers reinterpret existing elements to freely transform them into objects, furnishings and sustainable garments.
By re-using linen fabrics handwoven by craftsmen who are still devoted to these remarkable crafts, the garments bring together the origin of materials as well as our own origins. Linen is handspun, hand-woven into cloth and hand-stitched into garment. The aim is to give new purpose to carefully collected textiles and to reconcile traditional craftsmanship with wearable clothes.
