United Nude Lo Res Lamborghini Countach

July 6th, 2010

The Lo Res Project by United Nude, is an innovative design method using computer software to automatically create design options to choose from. By lowering the resolution of 3D models of products, the object becomes more and more fragmented, changing its character in the process. They’ve used this technique on a Lamborghini Countach and the result is quite nice. The United Nude Lo Res Shoe is the first product available at the United Nude stores.

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.

adidas SLVR 101

February 20th, 2009

The new adidas SLVR line is finally available, judging for the pictures it looks very minimal. This sneaker called the SLVR 101 definitely looks quite different than any other one from adidas. The upper is made of only six pieces, they were stitched together instead of using glue. The upper is sewed to a one-piece outsole. By comparison, an average sneaker is build up from 25 to 30 pieces. The 7 pieces SLVR 101 fulfills the SLVR concept of “Reduced Complexity” perfectly. The SLVR 101 is also available in white.

Nike City Knife II

February 11th, 2009

It has been a while since I saw something fresh from Nike. It seems that they only do crazy colorways or fake vintage these days … So here comes the Nike City Knife II: a foldable lightweight shoe. Kirsten Schambra who is responsible for the design, was inspired by origami structures. She taped a rough concept to a shoe last and developed it further from there. The concept is actually very simple, but I’m not sure if it will appeal to a wide audience. I like them, hey they are made of polygons!
