The design of the Venus Dress by Julia Koerner is inspired and based on analysis of the deep-sea sponge, also known as 'Venus flower basket'. The woven net-like structure grows based on environmental influences and adapts to its surroundings. It is influenced by light and water currents. The 3D-printed dress is a woven and tessellated matrix generated from a point-cloud. This is mapped based on characteristics and dimensions of the wearer. The dress also reacts to the wearer by using heat-mapping technology to highlight their emotions. Some parts of the dress are 3D printed using biodegradable thermo-chromatic parts, adapting to temperature and touch. In detail it also changes colour according to its environment.
