CAD Weaving Jars
CAD Weaving is a new material made by gluing together pieces of leather and veneer in a warp and woof manner. This new material forms a block that is simulated using 3D computer software, in order to examine the various cuts and patterns, and is then cut in a CNC machine. Each different top surface is the result of a different cut, showing the material’s potential of creating a variety of intricate, textile-like patterns.
The use of the woven material for the lids takes inspiration from classic kitchen jars with patchwork fabric covers. The project was first developed for Fendi and launched in the brand’s Sloane Square store in London.
