At the age of 72, Mr. Miyake is still very creative and innovative. His latest invention is creating clothes in 3-D origami using sustainable fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles (PET). The effect is rather like the rising of a Chinese lantern from its flat state into a rounded object.
The idea of this project is to create garments from a single piece of cloth without cutting and sewing, but using sharp, precise, permanent creases instead – just like origami. Jun Mitani, Japanese computer scientist helped Miyake develop the computer-generated formulas for the designs.
