commonly known as a folded pattern on clothing. But because of its
strong and beautiful structure, pleated patterns can be observed not
only in fashion but also in various fields.
If you observe your surroundings closely, you can notice that there are
dozens of pleated elements; from the leaves of indoor plants, clothings,
human body, suitcase, even to the roofs and walls of the building
that we live in. As you notice, pleats are closely related to our lives in
various scales. However, we normally don’t pay attention to the purpose
and usage of the pleats.
The memoir will start with the overview of the pleats; what it is, how
it’s used especially in nature. Along the way, the pleats will be classified
with different types such as nature, fashion, product, architecture,
and so on with examples. The research will provide new perspectives
on the pleated pattern and inspire the reader to brainstorm new ideas
with consideration of the structural and visual patterns.TutorsAnniina Koivu, Brynjar SigurðarsonFileDownload file
