PRZYTULENIE [EMBRACE]

The 13'' computer case combines pragmatic and sensual qualities in circular design. The intuitive, flowing shape and white color draw on the archetype of the casual pillow, providing protection by soft filling. The case breaks the typical connotations of computer storage, surprises with its unusual form, multiple uses and encourages to explore. The dynamic lines are the result of a combination of handwork and 3D printing technology.

Made with innovative technology, the cover is lightweight yet durable. It's designed to bring out the potential of only second-hand fabrics. The product was created from waste fabrics, and the inside filling is a garnetted stock of cotton textile created from recycled Reco fiber cotton jeans and reinforcing ribbing from 3D printing. The textile part is homogeneous in its composition, which simplifies further recycling. Each piece is unique, crafted from a different piece of upcycled fabric and biodegradable filament.

By using movable buttons, the cover easily transforms into a temporary pillow (when traveling, the computer can be taken out for work, and the cover can be rolled under the head or back) or a mat for sitting, moving towards a balance between working and resting. 3D skeleton made in collaboration with Spes3D, a company specializing in innovative printing techniques.

*the nonwoven fabric used in this project comes from post-consumer denim recycled by Reco Fibre into garnetted stock of cotton

Designer: [aporeei]

clothing and experimental textile objects designer. She is a graduate of the Fashion Design Department at the Haute École d'art et de Design in Geneva. For several years she has been running her own brand aporeei and designing for foreign clients. In her work, she articulates the tenets of circularity while looking at the contemporary mechanics of creating the value of things. The principles of her creative method are process thinking and aesthetics that reveal the potential of materials, but dilute familiar associations. Taking her cue from deconstructivism, Beata reconfigures and speculates with fragments of visual meanings, searching for new qualities. In her work, product responsibility goes hand in hand with sensuality expressed through characteristic curves and holes. The designer is the winner of the Hans Wilsdorf Award (Geneva) for the best graduation collection and has received several nominations in the fashion design category, including the Swiss Design Awards and Design Preis Schweiz.
