Superpattern Popup


Drawing on geometry, textile design and modern fabrication processes, Superpattern is a collection of 3D weaves applied to a range of customizable, made-to-order objects.The line consists of eight fundamental forms—a ring, a cuff, a bracelet, a necklace, a table lamp, a pendant light, a ceramic vessel, and an ottoman—which can be 3D printed in different patterns, sizes and materials. Each pattern is rooted in a combination of tiling and weaving—computationally generated and produced through different methods, including laser-sintered nylon, silver or brass cast via a lost wax process, and porcelain slip-cast in a mold. These processes bend the rules of materiality, freeing the interwoven patterns to flow around organic, curvilinear shapes in unprecedented ways.The collection was introduced in the fall with the Superpattern pop-up, a showcase and launch event running from September 21st to October 2nd in downtown Manhattan. A robotically milled topographic table and canopy was designed and fabricated to display the 70 unique objects in the collection.
