Inspired by new imaginary archetypes of animals, fetishism and instinct, dutch designer Bart Hess created a fantastic collection of artificial furs, an astonishing set of textiles developed by wisely blending materials not commonly used in fashion: plastics, metals, silicon and technical foils.
Exploring the physical characteristics of natural furs such as the tactile qualities, reflection and three-dimensionality; he manipulated and magnified those characteristics, translating them into an irresistible set of futuristic textiles called A Hunt for Hightech.
Hess has developed a method for producing the furs in automated ways, which enables him to create bigger pieces in faster ways.
