These Wunderpants were inspired by the anonymous Superheroes and Wonderwomen of the world, who are everyday fighting to save the environment one design at a time.

 

In addition to this recipe we added wax, which improves the materials hydrophobic properties as well as provides the material with a sheen. The color in this piece was made by blending various acrylic paints directly into the pot while cooking the Bioplastic.

The after the curing time of 3-5 days depending on the thickness, the result is almost a leathery texture.

The flat sheet of Bioplastic is then laser-cut using a pattern designed in Rhino, based on the custom measurement of the mannequin. Then the pieces can be manually assembled. All the connections are seamless using a modular system, in order to eliminate the need for sewing as well as to add detail to the garment.

The Wunderpants were exhibited from February – June 2018 as part of the exhibition «What’s next?»: The materials that will shape the future at Materfad at the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona.
