"The Engineered Body" collection merges new technology, functional and aesthetically design through out a holistically and responsible mindset. By making use of a seamlessly integrated material technology and a responsible simplified production, contributes to a more whole, new and physiological experience in the garments. Creating a variety of functional tactile materials and techniques that supports the body - the developed close-to-the skin textiles in the collection are created to among other; correct ones posture alignment naturally, and then giving the body engineered solutions that helps and work as clever, but as a natural extension of the body. The inspiration for the collection is the human body and it's outer and inner mechanism - gives my collection insights and discoveries from fields as diverse as neuroscience, physiology, material technology and innovation exploration. This collection is a collaboration with professional physiotherapists and professionals in the knitting industry, and therefore a cross disciplinary work, that in the end provides not only for the human body, but also as a new approach to the current societal and industry challenges. Because when we think about it - what is more important than us making responsible choices when it come to the products we buy or design?
