BA Major Design – Graduation Project
The project „37“ deals with the principle of the “Capsule Wardrobe”. This fashion approach is intended to make it possible to get along with fewer items of clothing without having to sacrifice something essential. By limiting themselves to the essentials, you can more easily find their own individual and self-confident style and learn to discover more possible combinations with fewer items of clothing. The number 37 is crucial here, 37 items of clothing for each season, that‘s the number the owner limits himself to. In total, the number of pieces does not exceed 70. Sounds like a big challenge at first, but it saves time, money and energy that would otherwise be lost in front of the wardrobe. The common piece of furniture consists of several wooden panels, for my “Capsule Wardrobe” I only need a single panel to reduce the wardrobe as a whole. On the one hand this saves money, on the other hand little waste during production is generated. The furniture can either remain free-standing or can easily use the empty space in the wardrobe to structure it and help it to make the most of it. The 37 items are stored with the help of two different storage functions: there is the option of suspending some items, as with conventional wardrobes. Another function is to roll up the clothes for easy storage. Rolling reduces the required volume and therefore the size of the piece of furniture can be adjusted. This offers a way of storage, but still leaves room for creative solutions, such as stuffing. This piece of furniture helps every beginner to a successful start towards a more sustainable decision in terms of clothes.
