DesignBoom recently published an article on, Joris de Groot – a designer constantly searching for connections between seemingly unconnect things. Applying a technique in one and applying it to a very different one. For Low & Bonar’s In4nite II Project, Joris explored bringing the techniques used to create car interiors, over to footwear.
Currently Low & Bonar’s colback® material is generally used in the automotive industry, where it’s incorporated into the car’s interior upholstery. After researching the material, Joris decided to focus on trying to mould the material and apply it to a shoe. He then utilised the “Festoon” technique to attach the upper to the EVA sole unit.
Below you can see some of the development process and final beauty shots.
