Launch of First Project by A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE
Created by an engineering team led by Mr. Yoshiyuki Miyamae, the new brand A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE continues and further develops the unique manufacturing process that A-POC has engaged in for over twenty years. The brand aims to further explore the potential of the A-POC system through exciting encounters and new discoveries the inspiration behind the word "ABLE."
As part of such efforts, TYPE-I is the first project to be born from the brandʼs interdisciplinary and cross-industrial interactions. Using a new material, Triporous™, which is made from rice husks and developed by Sony Group Corporation, a special black color that was not possible to achieve through conventional dying techniques was created. This special color, created by mixing Triporous into the thread used to make the fabric, fades less over time than the conventional dyed black, making it last longer in daily life.
The challenge this time began after an encounter with Takayuki Kitahara, a designer leading communication design for Triporous at Creative Center, Sony Group Corporation.
