A 3D-printed dress with thousands of interlocking parts looks and feels natural

As part of the upcoming #techstyle exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, design studio Nervous System created a 3D-printed dress that puts customization at the forefront of its design.

The Kinematic Petal Dress is based on the Kinematics system created by the design studio. The design of this particular piece not only allows for precise and specific measurements, it also allows for a range of movement. Created with thousands of interlocking parts, the garment mimics the movement of other materials used in fashion. The team took inspiration from feathers, petals and scales. By mimicking these materials, the dress adapts to the user’s movements.
