german studio aisslinger’s ‘NETwork’ project sees the transformation of 2-dimensional embroidery into a pop-up furniture object. ‘NETwork’ was first presented at milan design week 2010, and is now on show at DMY berlin design festival 2010 as part of DMY allstars, presented at the airport berlin – tempelhof hangar 5, booth 151.

using new 3D textile pop-up technology, developed by german manufacturer gerber GmbH in plauen, germany, the volumes of the ‘NETwork’ furniture objects are first translatedwith software into 2D projections of themselves. these are then directly programmed into the machines that stitch a pattern into a carrying surface. this surface is then dissolved and the embroidered 2D pattern becomes a free form 3D object. the objects are formed by stitched honeycomb structures which have been fixed over a fiberglass mold and impregnated with resin in order to make them rigid and structurally stable.
