Third year assignment 2013, choose an ethnical shoe and create a replica, then design a collection of 4 pairs of shoes, for the Academy of Fine Arts in Sint-Niklaas Belgium (SASK).
Design based on the crystal structure of Germanium.
Part of the collection Nano ft is inspired by nanotechnology. This relatively new area in science explores nature and technology at a very small scale. One nanometer is equivalent to comparing the size of a blueberry with the size of the earth. Things look and behave very different at the small scale of atoms and molecules. This was the inspiration for the collection.
