Shapes of Light Decorative Scarf

As a scarf design collaboration, Shapes of Light expresses diverse forms of light. The entire project was inspired by natural phenomena: the sunrise on the sea, building lights in the city at night, and the soft moonlight in the evening. The illustration concepts with a geometric, minimalistic visual style were transformed into actual products with woven textile technology. It took more than 30 steps in total to achieve the final result. Based on the idea of a wearable, tangible gallery, these textile designs can be used for daily accessories or home decorations.
