Lasercut, modular pieces of dense fabric are “snapped” together like a construction set to create fashions that suit the body as much as the interior walls that house it. Eunsuk Hur, a textile designer and a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, created Nomadic Wonderland “to push the boundaries of fashion and interior design by exploring different materials and approaches leading to new textile futures.”
Like a LEGO set, the fabric modules of Nomadic Wonderland can be playfully explored, built, and, best of all, torn down again to create something anew. In this way, Hur’s future vision is to create a sustainable system that can be refashioned and built upon.
Unlike a LEGO set, the modules are highly decorative and organic. They appear to be more inspired by the geometry found in nature than the geometry found in architecture. Leather, e-leather bonded with cashmere, wool felt and wood were the materials of choice for the modules. The fabric modules were shaped and designed by high-tech and low-tech techniques such as laser cutting, sublimation printing on wood, acid printing on wool felt, etching onto leather as well as handcraft techniques.
By giving the end user such a delightful experience, Hur, I feel, has succeeded in creating “a meaningful and lasting value relationships between user and design.”
