Marc Jacobs Mannequins
 
2014
 
SITU Fabrication produced a series of solid Whie Oak mannequins for the Marc by Marc Jacobs New York showroom. Milling was done in two stages. First, singly curved profiles were milled out of 1.7 inch thick planks of White Oak. Profiles were then glued-up to create stepped massings of the bodies. These glued segments were then remilled with a 5-axis CNC router to become smooth, doubly-curved figures. Hands and feet were flip-milled separately out of large sheets of the laminated White Oak. Milled pieces were then hand sanded and finished with a water-based lacquer. Shoulders and wrists are outfitted with custom stainless steel connection hardware.
