The Space in Between is an innovative textile project by Suzanne Oude Hengel and Milou Voorwinden. The project explores the creation and application of knitted and woven spacers, in a new and exciting way.
For the project Oude Hengel and Voorwinden worked alongside the machines and closely with the technicians Francesc Manosa and Francesc Pera of Eurecat. Doing this allows them to be able to engineer each step of the process, resulting in the functionalities being built directly into the fabric.
Focusing on application in footwear, the spacers could offer support, cushioning and protection. This technology and way of working allows for on demand personalisation tailored to the needs of the individual.
