During this year's Vienna Biennale we will open a Makershop in the heart of the city. In this pop-up we will show visitors our view of the future of (fashion) retail. The traditional shop is transformed to a space where our garments are presented in physical and digital form, where they can be customised and created using no other equipment then a lasercutter.
Once you pick your design, your fabric and get your measurements taken, we will customise the design for you, lasercut the pattern pieces, and give you your personal design within half an hour.
We think the Makershop is a great concept for a more sustainable future. Because items are only made after they are sold, we will never have any left-over stock. The materials we use are already recycled or can be easily recycled due to the production and assembly process.
Vienna Biennale 2017
Robots. Work. Our Future
The Vienna Biennale is the first event of its kind to combine art, design, and architecture. This year's edition is called Robots. Work. Our Future and fits perfectly with the vision that we're working towards with Post-Couture:
“The vision of a digital humanism will be brought close to reality by the Vienna Biennale 2017. Under the motto Robots. Work. Our Future, creative spaces will open up for contemplating meaningful living and working and the sustainable use of robotics and artificial intelligence in the digital age. Contributions from the fields of art, design, and architecture will sketch out the joint potential of robots and human work as an opportunity to bring about humanely motivated positive change.”
Our pop-up and participation in the exhibition at the MAK will be part of the CityFactory - New Work. New Design. concept:
"The research laboratory for new fields of work in the creative industries—the City Factory—is a cooperation project between the Vienna Business Agency with its creative center departure and the MAK, curated by IDRV – Institute of Design Research Vienna. The discovery and visualization of future urban potentialities will be continued in 2017, with the topics of NEW CREATIVE WORK, NEW SOCIAL WORK, and NEW SUSTAINABLE WORK undergoing thorough study this year."
