A sleek new sports­wear col­lec­tion is not what it seams

Wallpaper - - Newspaper -

sports­wear isn’t al­ways that sexy, but a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween nor­we­gian tech­ni­cal sports­wear brand odlo and zaha ha­did ar­chi­tects has left us breath­less. the zaha de­sign team has cre­ated a set of engi­neered base layer tops and leg­gings that fea­ture odlo’s sig­na­ture in­no­va­tions, in­clud­ing body map­ping, seam­less knit­ting and ze­roweight in­su­la­tion. the two sets (one for men, one for women) fea­ture an elas­tic, seam­less knit­ted tex­ture that con­trols the flow of air and adapts to breath­ing and move­ment. thanks to body map­ping, the pieces act like a sec­ond skin, with no seams lim­it­ing flow and flex­i­bil­ity. the col­lec­tion took shape in much the same way that most of the ar­chi­tec­tural prac­tice’s projects come to life, with a com­bi­na­tion of vis­ual ideas and rig­or­ous re­search. sport­ing un­der­wear has never been so fit. odlo.com; zaha-ha­did.com
