What is Re-Fream? (long version)

Re-FREAM is a collaborative research project where selected artists and designers team up with a community of scientists to rethink the manufacturing process of the fashion industry.

Over a nine-month period, these hybrid teams will embark on a co-research and co-creation journey guided by a specific art/tech collaboration methodology in which they will employ some of the most powerful technologies from some of the world’s most cutting-edge labs.

With a focus on the future of urban manufacturing of fashion, the research will be carried out at three different European scientific hubs (Berlin, Linz, Valencia). Each hub is dedicated to one area of research: additive manufacturing, smart textiles and sustainable finishing. We call them challenges.

In our co-creation spaces we provide access to technologies such as 3D printing (PolyJet), micro-nebulization, ozone or calendering technology, laser cutting, injection-molding etc.

The goal is to develop new concepts for the future of fashion by means of new processes and aesthetics that are inclusive and sustainable. All research results, co-creation processes and the technological tool box will be shared openly to build up a self-running and sustainable innovation community with artists and technologists.

New horizons for the fashion industry

“Re-Fream offers the perfect scenery to bring out art-driven innovation with an emphasis on fashion. The ten selected artists express the ideas and dreams of a new generation of creatives, where beauty blends with sensibility and function, and our clothes are more adaptable, smart, and sustainable. Their inspiring visions create a magical balance between art and technology and opens up new horizons for the fashion industry.” (Isabel Berz, IED - jury member)
