Rotational Moulded Shoe

March 12th, 2009

Rotational Moulding is an industrial production technique, used for creating many hollow plastic objects. Marloes ter Bhömer is a Dutch designer based in London, who took this technique to produce this shoe. I guess this is more some sort of conceptual exercise than a real product idea.
You can go and see this project, among many others, at the exhibition Brit Insurance Designs of the Year 2009 at the Design Museum in London till the 14th of June.

    Hello- I go to the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and this is actually at the Krannert Art Museum. I even got a chance to meet the artists. It is pretty cool to see this on the site. She was nice and definitely had some killer black heels on the night of the opening. That machine though- makes a devil of a high pitch sound.
