STAHL X SLEM concept shoe

For this assignment I was approached by Stahl to create a prototype to display their new material collection. The chosen materials naturally developed into “Lightweight Living”, a concept focussed on respecting the planet and balancing one's mind.

To visualize the concept of balance, a double face fastening using magnets was designed. The user can choose to wear the cork on top, creating a natural look, or to hide it under the grey material, creating an urban industrial look. Thanks to SLEM I was able to create the prototype in collaboration with a shoe factory in Houije, China.

The end result was displayed at Linea Pelle 2015.
