Collection – Iceland 2017

The new products of the Iceland Collection are signature pieces designed and crafted by Julia Körner. The designs are digitally coded with computational design techniques and 3D printed in delicate materials utilizing emergent technologies of additive manufacturing. Combined with fine leather craftsmanship these products are handmade in the Ateliers in Los Angeles and Salzburg. The unique pieces are the first of their kind combining digital and traditional craftsmanship, elevating this unique clothing design towards ready-to-wear within 3D printed fashion.
