Written on the body
a tribute to the surface

Unfold originally took its name from a fascination for computational design methods and the surface of the human body. This led to a series of design projects called ‘tribute to surface’ in which a computer program designed to unfold simple forms was used on complex 3D models, such as a 3D scan of the human body. The generated complex patterns initiated a research into new production methods.
