The Bristle Dress

by Thingiverse
Francis Bitonti Studio, a multidisciplinary design studio in New York City, organized a workshop at the Metropolitan Exchange in Brooklyn that resulted in the creation of their second 3D printed dress. They built a web interface with MakerBot allowing people to configure the skirt from a super structured mini to an expanded flare skirt.

"We wanted to make the body solidify into harder geometry, going from atmosphere to ice. We integrated a fur lining in their version to ease in the transition. The skirt can be secured by either gluing a hook and eye strip or industrial zipper down the back seam. We are starting to think a lot about design interfaces and questioning how much the public is willing to design." - Francis Bitonti Studio
