With a background in architecture, French designer Pauline Marcombe has created a wooden t-shirt design she calls Prototype Triangle Numéro 1.
Made entirely out of laser-cut MDF triangles held together by wire, the t-shirt features vaulted shoulders and a multi-paneled surface often associated with edgy architectural designs. Even the numbers burnt onto each side of the triangle, generated by computer software, are more likely to evoke architectural blue-print measurements rather than clothing.
The deep-v neckline and the short above-the-navel cropping gives just the slightest nod towards modern everyday t-shirts; however, these slight similarities also serve to emphasize just how far away from the norm this prototype really is. Its bold design features an unusual material choice -- Marcombe's wooden t-shirt seems to have arrived from a distant future where architectural wooden clothes are all the rage.
