ELEMENTUM ethical design !
ELEMENTUM is the result of the Clothing Species project developed by Daniela Pais at the Man& Humanity Masters program at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2005-2007.
This project resulted from a yearlong research into industrialized models and behaviors and a study into other models of consumption, both prompted by the magnitude of consumption waste from products that characterizes our society.
The ELEMENTUM clothing collection consists of 9 different designs that can be used in manyways: from scarf to dress, along with a shirt, jacket, skirt and trousers.
It can cover your head, your neck, down till your feet. It can be wear at, twisted and in layers. The construction of the pieces is based on the total use of a piece of cloth in a tubular dimension, where minimum cuts provide maximum use.
ELEMENTUM invites you to develop new perspectives about your body, identity expression and consumption.
