buckminster fuller study
Buckminster Fuller gave birth to some of the most radical projects the world has ever seen, devoting much of his extraordinary life on a quest to find order in the universe. To him, architecture was the closest thing to help navigate the intricate systems of society and its development. He invented the Geodesic Dome, calling it “nature’s own coordinate system”. This lightweight structure was built for easy assembly allowing it to morph and stretch into new adventurous spaces. The material efficiency, structural integrity, and adaptability were the key ingredients to what Fuller hoped would eventually become a sustainable design intervention.
Variations of the Geodesic Dome, however experimental than the one before, shadowed the same mathematical and theatrical rules. It needed a spherical shell with a hexagonal grid technique, a series of repetition to create visual excitement, and lastly, it had to be built in an expansive space. Over the decades, the dome evolved from being just a spatial enclosure to a sensorial experience.
Following in the footsteps of Buckminster Fuller, this jumpsuit is designed with the formal complexities of geometry in mind. It is crafted using our special technique of hand-quilting, creating ergonomic structure with every stitch. The piece is made in our most adaptable fabric, arching and bowing along the curves of the female body. It has a zipper at the back for structural integrity and an elasticated waistband that sits along your mid-waist.
Sizing and Styling Guide:
The model’s height is 5’8 ft and she comfortably fits into a size S. Made in our Yoganomic Modal fabric, it sculpts the female figure. It looks best worn true to size without a bra. So if you are a size S, buy an S.
