Freedom of Creation: Downloading Clothes

Freedom of Creation (FOC) of Helsinki uses laser sintering to "create digitally generated consumer products. These products are more than stunning beauties. They are also models for localized manufacturing and distribution logistics where no stock, no assembly, minimal transportation and just-in-time production are future goals" -what we have been discussing at Absolut Downloads. They have designed a range of products from lighting to textiles; watch a video of the process here. Jiri Evenhuis came up with the idea of Rapid Manufactured textiles- "instead of producing textiles by the meter, then cutting and sewing them into final products, this concept has the ability to make needle and thread obsolete." ::FOC via ::PSFK and more at ::In An Absolut World Everything is Downloadable
