“I designed a gown inspired…by a mathematical formula known as the Golden Ratio–a spiral…that is said to quantify ideal proportions of beauty.” – Michael Schmidt
While you might think the dress would be rather stiff, Schmidt and Bitonti were able to make it malleable by constructing 3,000 articulating joints into the dress.
“The beauty of this technology is that you can create forms that are unimaginable, un-createable, in any other way. The human hand can only do so much.” – Michael Schmidt
As B.J. Murphy learned for Serious Wonder, technology and fashion are fusing their worlds. And what Schmidt’s design shows us is the progressive future for 3D Printing. It looks like 3D Printing is started to be applied in just about every area of our lives. Where else do you see 3D Printing being used in the future?
