"DNair" by Melissa Grustat is a thirteen-piece collection. The main component of all pieces is airbag fabric collected from various sources or sponsored by German companies. Although the origin is different, all materials would have been thrown away. The designs are meant to show what future applications are possible for this high-tech airbag fabric.
