CITY OF SOUND BOLERO

BY Dimension Alley X myProductLab X TheStudio by Sophie dI Bartolomeo

THE DESIGNER

The City of Sound bolero is a collective project of two designers and a creative technologist. ElektroCouture in-house designer Sofie Di Bartolomeo focuses on the connection between smart textiles and the body; for this piece she joined forces with Pelgrim Vanderkerkhove from myProductLab – Berlin-based specialist in concepting, product design and prototyping – and Norma Barr, co-founder of DimensionAlley, Berlin’s first 3D printing shop.

THE CONCEPT

For the City of Sound bolero the designers recorded actual traffic noises and converted them into a three-dimensional pattern, which reminds of a big city skyline. The improvisational traffic map of Germany embraces the contours on the wearer’s back and arms and symbolically points towards how movement influences our daily lives.

THE TECHNOLOGY

The jacket is made from soft faux-leather and suede with the 3D design printed directly onto the material using flexible and stiff biodegradable plastics. For a clean finish, a laser-cut surface was added that fits precisely with the cityscape pattern.
