Ideas and research outside consultancy form…
a collection of research and projects into emerging or alternative materials, processes and design thinking. Often the projects are collaborative with artist, other designers or medical specialist. Themes explored are natural materials, additive processes, how the body informs future manufacturing ideas and innovative shoe constructions.
Practice based creative research is the best way to test ideas. Working on collaborative projects means ideas can be tested quickly and further working relationships can be formed with the footwear industry in a knowledge transfer way to contribute concepts to the future shoes we wear.
