Fashion collective threeASFOUR will debut their spring 2014 line at the Jewish Museum of New York as part of an exhibit called MER KA BA. Open September 15th through February 2nd, the multimedia exhibition brings together fashion design, architecture, and video art inspired by the "sacred geometry and tile patterns found in synagogues, churches and mosques around the world."
Visitors will enter a dark gallery before walking into a temple shaped like a six-pointed star. The entire thing is lined in mirrors, and there will be "video art" beamed into the temple while meditative tunes play. "It will be like walking inside a telescope," says a museum curator. If that isn't trippy enough, threeASFOUR will be working with an architect on 3D-printed fabrics with religiously symbolic latticework.
