For the project Hybride Blanket from Aurélie Mathieu, the idea was to combine the natural aspect of this extremely luxurious material with a technical common one, using industrial techniques. After having selected and treated this mink blanket, an industrial company used a bonding process with Mylar to finally finish it in the Kopenhagen fur studios. The objective was to improve the thermal proprieties and waterproof quality of the multilayer result, while bringing a technical alternative to the traditional processes.
Second Skin from Ana Varela is a set of functional medical orthese : wrist support, cervical collar and arm-sling made of natural tanned leather and mink fur. The series is designed to age well, like a good pair of shoes, slowly acquiring a patina to make it look and feel better day after day, becoming truly yours.
