Temporary Tights, Australia


Australian architectural design studio Edwards Moore created an innovative backdrop from recycled hosiery at a pop-up shop for fashion brand Arnsdorf in Melbourne last week, proving that quick, inexpensive design solutions can produce effective results.

Inspired by crystalline forms and geology, the sculptural decoration transforms mundane tights into a membranous, cave-like structure. The installation was created using 154 pairs of tights, stretched across the walls and ceiling of the space.

The temporary retail space was in situ for just three days to showcase Arnsdorf’s new seasonal collection, entitled Opticks.
