Field Mattress – the work process

As I was responsible for the technical part of this project, I approached it as if the city of Moster was a human body and the “Filled Mattress” a costumed tailored dress.

First I designed the “look” while using photo samples of the fabrics we chose. Than I built a real size 3D cardboard model of the mattress, that will function as a “tailors-mannequin”. This allowed us to re-create the actual topographic landscape of Moster by placing the fabric pieces directly on the model and forming them in the right shape.

For information about the conceptual side of this project please visit Yoav’s website.
