ANEMONIA is part of a material research inspired by the positive scientific developments within growing corals artificially, as a solution for dying reefs. The material visualises the process of growth and the movement of a sea anemone. When the material lays flat, it isn’t showing what’s below the surface. When it gets moved around it flows, as if water is running through the tentacles of an anemone, revealing its lively colour.
A lasercut pattern in a poly fabric works together with a contrasting, brightly coloured 100% silk base, which emphasizes the three dimensional qualities of the material.
