In Pursuit of Luxury

Modeclix is a 3D printed textile that can be used to make an array of different types of flexible products, from clothing and accessories to toys and interior decorations.

Its innovation is in its ability to be infinitely deconstructed and then reconstructed by hand after printing. This enables Modeclix to simply be re-configured, re-purposed, repaired and recycled at any time. This extends both its use and the products lifecycle. 

Modeclix is a modular design solution that encourages customers to be part of a community that is concerned about the impact their behaviour is having on the planet.
