3D Printed Shoes Nominated For Award

3D Printed Shoes Nominated For AwardYou might have seen those amazing 3D printed shoes produced by Materialise. Well, they’re so impressive they’ve been nominated for the Brit Insurance Design Award, and as such they’re being exhibited in London until 7th August of this year at the Design Museum. According to Materialise:
 
Within the fashion category are nominees Naim Josefi and Souzan Youssouf for the Melonia Shoe, a 3D printed shoe which hit the runway last February.
 
Naim and Souzan, of Beckmans and Konstfack design school respectively, collaborated in the creation of the shoe, 3D printing five pairs with Materialise for use in Naim’s “Melonia” collection at last year’s Stockholm Fashion Show. The shoe was designed to be a closed loop, in which a person can go to a shop, have their foot scanned, and have a shoe printed of homogenous, recyclable material. This pair of shoes can then be recycled to provide the material for a new pair when needed, the entire process embodying the concept of “no waste”.
 
Good luck!
