As the world starts to seriously sit up and take note (and action) in the need for a sustainable planet, it was a privilege and very refreshing to be invited to attend a collaborative project by OutDoor by ISPO, ISPO and Vanish™ called THE BORDERLANDS™.
The main concept of THE BORDERLANDS exhibition, organized under the new partnership of VANISH and ISPO, was the motif of "Nature - Future - Culture" : blurring the boundaries between seemingly unrelated concepts. Modern outdoor-industry needs a new round of development, expansion of consciousness, the inclusion of imagination and new vision.
Primarily, the exhibition displayed CGI artists’ work and their aesthetics of the original cyberpunk sub-genre of Science Fiction, featuring technological and scientific advancements and to explore the future of the outdoor industry.
In addition to the artistic component of the composition in the form of art and graphically decorated walls, brands were invited to participate, the concept of which demonstrates modern progressive and functional clothing, as well as science fiction inspiration. Thus, in one space combing different brands under one motif : "Nature - Future - Culture"
