Shoe project Design Academy
BIG CHALLENGE FOR STUDENTS
Last Tuesday I was present at the final presentation of a shoe project of second-and third-year students of the Design Academy in Eindhoven. These students from two directions, Man and Mobility and Lab, his last autumn launched a project on shoes. In several respects, a challenge because they had only a few months to design a shoe and manufacture. In addition, a number of additional requirements. For example, in the design process was to make use of a 3D design program, and the design should be suitable to be manufactured with a 3D printer. The German company Objet, partner in this special project, put his equipment and expertise available to the shoe print.
The shoes are also exhibited at the Shoe Museum in Waalwijk
