London architect and artist Daniel Widrig recently showed off Kinesis, his line of customizable 3D wearable sculptures at Design Miami. As implied by the collection’s name, the undulating curves of the lightweight 3D-printed sculptures create a sense of dynamic movement. Widrig’s also built his wearable collection based on 3D scans of the model’s body to make each piece a unique and expressive extension of the human form.

The soft and sinuous lines in Widrig’s 3D-printed collection draw similarities to the work of his mentor Zaha Hadid, who he worked under for several years. After establishing his own studio in 2009, Widrig has gone on to collaborate with fashion designer Iris van Herpen to create a series of 3D printed dresses.

Made from a polyamide/nylon material, each piece is laser-sintered into striated patterns that ebb and flow from the body. Three-dimensional body scans allowed Widrig to customize each piece to the unique geometry of the model’s torso. Little Black Spine, for instance, is an exoskeleton-like piece that was designed to look like a natural extension of the model’s spine. His necklaces resemble clouds of black smoke that fit snugly around the model’s breast and neck area.

Widrig’s pieces were on display as part of Luminaire’s “Design+World” event earlier this month.
