Description

Modular design is a design approach that features small standardized units that can be independently combined in various configurations to create different forms and provide multiple functions. Modular design has the potential to be ubiquitous through the ability to transform and create a beautiful utilitarian experience for any circumstance. This design was a part of a cross-disciplinary creative collaboration between an apparel designer and printmaker. The purpose of this partnership is to explore transformable design by integrating the concept of modularity and engineering prints, which feature continuous tiling of artwork. Inspired by hydrangeas, the themes of sustainability and transformation were explored and embodied through the design and the concept. The challenge of this design was to create modules that can not only be combined independently in a variety of ways to create garments or accessories, but also function as closures to join engineering printed fabrics to create dynamic and changeable surface designs.
