The Full Story of Astro Anurita

The new spacesuit

With the soon arrival of commercial space travel, spacesuits are currently being marketed as “ultimate in bespoke couture”. They will not only remain as uniforms for astronauts but might in future become an ultimate clothing item for “fashion - forward customers''. “It has become necessary for the suits to mirror trends in contemporary fashion design”.

Anurita - Sense of Self Poster.jpg

Vision

A ‘sense of self form’ in collaboration with David De Lima to give Astro Anurita a formal identity.

Vision

Over a period of 15 days, I documented a list of things I use on an everyday basis, I created an absolute necessary list of items to carry with me to the “off-planet colony”1 as every item I carry would have been a “huge expense”2. Therefore, the space suit3 that I made is a multi-functional piece of clothing that could easily be converted into everday clothing items.

Mission

Therefore I created a highly personalised spacesuit that will remind the astronauts of their life back on earth.
