These stunning images illustrate the Object 12-1 project by Croatian designer Matija Čop. The garments are constructed from interlocking laser cut foam pieces and are influenced by construction techniques and shapes found in gothic architecture. The layouts are taken from the plans of cathedrals such as St. Jacob’s in Šibenik, Croatia. The garments can be taken apart and reconstructed differently as no glue is used to fix the pieces together. Object 12-1 is Čop’s final piece for his studies at the Faculty of Textile Design of the University in Zagreb. He adds : “OBJECT 12-1 is created with the use of the laser cutter and the ‘plug and feather’ mechanics. Its production lasted for three months. The Šibenik cathedral is a chiseled stone building dated from the year 153. Both objects are atypical for their field (fashion and architecture): they exemplify a very inventive use of material, and spontaneously express their own visual culture forming a ‘cape – suit’.”
