THE SYMA LINE

The Syma Line is an interactive fashion tech collection. The project aims to explore the symbiosis between music, fashion and science, and shows how sound and frequencies affect the physical world.

The idea is based on the visualization of sound and the influence of frequencies. The so-called Chladnic sound figures from the science of Cymatics are the inspiration for this collection, the patterns of these figures serve as a design for the individual outfits. Each design is based on a different sound figure. The collection explores the impact of sound on our environment and our ability to respond to it, visualize it and create it ourselves. The sense of hearing, sight and touch is addressed. The function of the senses is brought in line with technology. The collection is made out of “sound fabrics” by Gerriets, which are equipped with acoustic certificates and due to their nature, block incoming sound waves and thereby withhold the body’s own frequencies.

Two outfits in the collection contain sound sensors and react with light impulses to the ambient volume. Two outfits have their own network. Smart textiles are used to translate the touch of the clothing into sounds.

The designer Layla De Mue developed this fashion tech collection when she was a designer in residence at the Berlin startup and design office ElektroCouture in 2016/17. She received intense support from creative technologist Imanol Gomez, who developed the technology and thus contributed significantly to the realization of the idea.

At the FASHIONTECH Berlin in January and July 2017, The Syma Line was presented to an international audience for the first time. The Fashiontech Conference takes place during the Berlin Fashion Week and is organized by the Premium Group. It thematises current trends in the fashion industry such as e-commerce, digitalisation in fashion, innovation in fashion technology, wearables, smart textiles in clothing, digital marketing and also provides a platform for international startups and designers to present their work. Here you can see the future of fashion.

The Syma Line has since been a highlight at many other national exhibitions, lectures and fashion shows.

The future is now.
