space invader / deconstruction / tectonic / tactile / habitat

270x270cm, high-tech jersey, dye sublimation, four pieces, prototype


in 2004 dorkenwald und spitzer started to explore other materials like stretchy and soft fabrics to create products which remain light, while providing different options to adjust to individual space and living situations.


the created imagery printed on the fabric is linked to interior design and provides a notion of life style. It also becomes a three-dimensional object when it is distorted and suspended in space. a poetic and functional sculpture, it responds to existing structures and intervenes with either indoor space or outdoor landscape.


in the motif, details like an electrical plug or the airport sign symbolize independent ways of living and shelter for the user. incorporated hardware such as solar panels, light switches, led or sound boxes provide more possibilities to interact with the object.
