rachel harding: 3D lace

recently graduating from her masters from the royal college of art, london, UK-based rachel harding, in collaboration with max klaentschi, explores the aesthetics of human dysfunction. based on scientific and cultural research, her designs are hybrids of technological possibility and societal ruin.

her project ‘3D lace’ takes traditional textiles and transforms them into three-dimensional objects. harding laces, tweeds and damasks are extruded to create stalagmite structures. each form retains a certain sense of decorative grandeur when viewed from above, but in profile they become something both beautiful and terrifying.
