Reiko Sudo (Nuno) at Cooper-Hewitt’s · 20/03/2013

Nuno combines the best of past and present; drawing on traditional aesthetics and attention to creative processes to inspire today’s fashions, while enlisting modern technologies to make Japan’s “lost art” more accessible to textile lovers worldwide. Nuno’s creativity manifests in surprising ways. Threads with “incompatible” shrink ratios are interwined and tossed into a hot dryer to yield unprecedented sculptural textures.  Metalic films are bonded to conventional threads, then melted to create transparent filigrees.  Computer-programed looms dance to digitally-enhanced Apfrican tribal patterns.  Chemically-reprocessed Okinawan banana fibre-coated cottons complement laboriously hand-finished synthetics.
