The designer’s most recent application of technology is the creation of a new type of fabric that contracts into rigid structures when exposed to steam, called 3D Stretch Seam.  Computer software is used to calculate the composition of different cotton and polyester weaves, which react to the steam and turn into three-dimensional patterns that are first tested as paper prototypes.  “It looks like origami but it’s folded by steam, not by hand,” said Miyamae, Miyake’s cre

ative director. “It’s not created by a mould or pre-formed or anything, everything is woven from scratch – from yarn into fabric.”
