The TUTA 100 anniversary
October 18 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us as we revisit the TUTA a century later, revealing the promises of modern design and its consequences in the present.
A hundred years ago, a man imagining the future designed what he thought to be the most revolutionary garment of the century. In contemporary terms, it was a zero waste user-centered design. Considerate of labor practices, it was a must-have for your minimalist wardrobe; the trend-setter’s normcore outfit (quite a few buzz words right here). This man was Ernesto Michahelles, known as THAYAHT, he is mostly remembered for this one-piece suit designed in 1919—the TUTA.
From what he called the future, I am looking back at THAYAHT, appreciative yet critical of his creation. Revisiting the TUTA in 2019 raises questions about the hopes and promises of modern design, and floods their disappointing consequences like plastic in the ocean.
In this talk, I will unfold THAYAHT’s four principles for the TUTA design, and present critical contemporary reactions to these ideas.
