Founded in 2011 by Mirko Hinrichs and Silvio Scheller, “BIEST” can be seen as an art project which inspires new contemplation of “Body and Space” in relation to the dimensionality of fashion, intimacy, and perception. In search for a concept that combines fashion, architecture and design, BIEST fabrics play with a varying dimensionality of forms and ideas for housing and clothing, where body and space are a “performative utterance”.
While being in Kyoto, they are currently creating an object that refers to Japanese processing and refinement techniques, as well as to Japanese ideals such as sustainability and simplicity.
