In the past 10 years, human kind has produced more plastic than the entire 20th century. I believe that a great design is a measure of our progress – therefore I feel that it is my responsibility to embrace sustainability as important direction of inspiration.
The current technology and 3D-software possibilities are truly changing the way how we interact, design and manufacture products. My purpose for this project has one simple goal – to explore the possibilities of 3D software's that leads my design process and results into much smaller footprint on the planet.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
This prototype sneaker is specially developed for all environments in mind. It features organic design language with optimized two-layer construction for the best comfort. The translucent waterproof upper with Gore-Tex membrane, helps you to stay dry in wet climates. With the highly responsive 3D printed mid sole, your weight distributes in every step you take. The wider out-sole design provides optimal grip and traction for wet surfaces. To avoid any unnecessary feet movements, the sneaker has distinctive larger heel counter.
INSTINCTIVE CREATION PROCESS
I am always searching for the 3D software's that offers more intuitive and more spontaneous 3D object creation experience. Something more familiar and more exciting to real life design development! This project was made by using Marvelous Designer, Pixologic Zbrush and Keyshot. The main goal was simply to work with 3D scanned avatars to study the functionality and the ergonomics of human anatomy. To replace the traditional real life prototyping process with fully-digital design development.
