Y3 ‘Sinus’ Concept by Daniel Wilhelm

Frankfurt based designer, Daniel Wilhelm’s latest Y3 concept, inspired by pleating fabrics, is a super interesting mix of intricate tooling, with some type of cables/lacing incorporated into the heel, a multi-layered microfibre upper and a pretty aggressive looking last silhouette.

The idea being that the ‘non-techy’ upper material, ‘lives’ and moves with your foot. With each stride the material would stretch to reveal an elasticated gradient layer beneath the laser patterned microfibre outer shell.

You can check out Wilhelm’s beautifully designed ‘Sinus’ concept, from initial inspiraiton through to final render, below.
