FAST FACTS: DYSON + ISSEY MIYAKE
> In 1985, James Dyson first encountered ISSEY MIYAKE’s work
> at an exhibition at the Boiler House museum
> (forerunner to the Design Museum) in London.
> He’s been a fan ever since; particularly
> admiring Miyake’s bold approach to design:
> “Issey Miyake has for many years shown the world what design is all about.
> Reinventing the shape of clothing.
> Coming up with new production methods. Redefining materials. A true original”.
> The collaboration between Dai Fujiwara and James Dyson,
> for Paris Fashion Week,
> began in August 2006 following a visit by Dai to Dyson’s
> Research Design and Development centre in Wiltshire.
> Dai set James the challenge of bringing wind power to his catwalk show.
> The material used by Dyson for the giant yellow ‘hoses’
> in the set is more commonly used for police dog training
> or extracting exhaust fumes from aircraft.
> Each of the five tubes is 14m long and 0.65m in diameter.
> They were tested in a huge warehouse at Dyson’s RDD Centre in the UK
> and flown out for further testing in Paris.
> Dai Fujiwara has incorporated blueprints from Dyson designs
> as well as actual Dyson machine parts into his collection
> ISSEY MIYAKE pioneered the award-winning A-POC (a piece of cloth)
> process: garments are made using industrial knitting
> or weaving machines programmed by a computer.
> This process creates continuous tubes of fabric
> within which lie both shape and pattern
> Dyson will dedicate the next version of the Dyson DC16 handheld
> cleaner to ISSEY MIYAKE, to celebrate
> the WIND collaboration – this will be available in November 2007
> By designing this set James Dyson has come full circle;
> one of his first projects was designing London’s
> Roundhouse theatre. A former locomotive turning house,
> he transformed it into an auditorium.
