Pleats Inspirations: Architecture Travels

Pleats Design

Our inspirations come from various avenues, but none greater than our travels around the world. Utilizing architecture as our muse, Pleats Design concept foundations are firmly rooted in structure, form and layers.  

 Repetition of geometric patterns can form the skin of an object. Through various applications, a design can take these geometries and form a multitude of shapes. The ultimate result is strong geometric patterns creating a unique visual effect.

 Complex forms are not one dimensional. Architecture uses angles and facets to create buildings which evoke motion and sculptural volume. Unique perspectives can be found from various view points within the building. Through layering of materials and various geometry, one can add intrigue and focal point to the design.

 Organic forms can be derived from geometry as well. Nature provides us with a multitude of organic geometries, similarly physical design applies these geometries into softer lines and free sculptural form.

Movement: Static to kinetic

Pleats Design

Our inspiration for the Linea Collection stems from architecture and geometry.  Our creation is a series of objects which can stand alone with strength and presence. But these objects are not static. They carry function which compliment a women's life with style and utility. We wanted to infuse this function with grace by having faces and edges of the geometry cohesively work together to open and close. This graceful movement was a key element in the design of the Linea collection.

Concept to realization: methodology of our designs

Pleats Design

Rooted in pure geometry, our structured form design is brought to life through a combination of methods. Our approach to purse design closely mirrors that of our architecture design process. Volumetric forms begin as a series of sketches and models, the computer brings them together for a dimensional reality. The finished result echoes a minimalist purity, but has been worked through numerous iterations to achieve that effortless feel.

 Sketches are translated to digital form, first step from ideation to realization.

 Digital forms are tested by creating scaled paper models through pleating.

The beginning

Pleats Design

Every design starts with a line. Our Linea collection is conceptualized with highest degree of detail and effort. We start with a hand sketch to create beautiful two dimensional images which leads to the next step of modeling.
