Codebreaking Clothing that Transforms Into Acoustic Art
For immediate release from Design + Conquer, VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada
“Reducing and eliminating the use of plastics is essential...but what do we do with the plastics that already exist?” asks Design + Conquer Creative Director Morgan Mallett. “This collection strives to be a part of the answer.”
Worn on the body, hung on the wall as sound-absorbing art, or viewed as crypto art / NFTs, Design + Conquer’s Decrypt collection is as versatile as it is unique. Inspired by the allied WWII codebreakers at Bletchley Park, the new collection is set to re-code paradigms in both art and design realms.
“We need to think more three-dimensionally about everything we produce as humans. It’s great to make a new and interesting design, but what is involved in its creation, what possible impacts and uses will it have during its lifespan, and what happens with it in the distant future?” Says Mallett.
As clothing, each design in the collection is made from a single piece of acoustic felt, and folds around the body using scoring, slits and tabs, and is secured with premium snap fastenings. Made from 70% recycled post-consumer polyester (rPET), each design is also fully recyclable. Unfolded and hung on the wall, each design functions as a sound-absorbing work of art. Finally, as an NFT (non-fungible token), the design becomes a digital collectible.
