Coral is a new concept of bikini, never seen before.
It is a new and radical underwear, a new way to be covered or “uncovered”.
Coral is not just a bikini, is the idea of what we want to be or what we want to change for the next future.
The Idea was to link new technologies, as 3d printing, with handmade manufacturing, trying to give the best quality and a creative innovation in terms of concept and production process.
Coral bikini is the first 3d printed swimming collection, it came from geometric and organic inspirations.
It evokes marine microorganism with organic and intricate structures.
Made of Pla and Pla flex polylactide (is a biodegradable and compostable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources, such as corn, by FDM technology (Fused Deposition Modeling), there are four different models.
The tops are made almost entirely of pla. The bottoms are in Lycra or made by crochet, handsewn with 3d printed embroideries that look them unique.
The minimum thickness offers a perfect wearability, adaptability and comfort, and the fabric inserts make the 3d printed organic shapes wearable as a normal underwear, feeling without any discomfort.
3d printing is the revolution of the production process. We will produce what we need, without any wasting. Recycling the pla of every single piece.
I mean, if you want a new bikini, we can recycle and reuse the old one, melting and extruding the pla and printing the new one.
Alternatively, you can compost it. That means that the bikini won't biodegrade on your body, or in the water.
The Pla is made from natural resources, that it could be produced in a sustainable way! It can be made from beer or coffee production waste.
That’s the revolution!
