Nigerian American designer Oluwaseyi Sosanya, a graduate from Royal College of Art (RCA), has created an amazing machine that can weave yarn in three dimensions.

A loom that weaves yarn in three dimensions

The loom weaves “interconnected layers of straight warp threads and intertwining weft patterns at different heights”, providing the 3D. The machine works like a 3D printer and was used to create a shoe sole, presented at the RCA’s annual degree show as Sosanya’s graduate project.

The loom is still a prototype, but it is easy to imagine its potentials for architecture, fashion and product design.
