From 0° to 90° Avantgarde Shoes by Anuk Yosebashvili

Home > Winners > #35844


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
From 0° to 90°

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Avantgarde Shoes

INSPIRATION:
The collection was inspired from ballet and fencing. Foot transformation, foot binding and Chinese Lotus feet.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Project showcased how the new multi-material 3D printing technology can be used as a fabrication tool for highly complex structures made of a combination of materials that was before never achievable in one process.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Avant-garde shoes demonstrating feet transportation. I always like to show as much of myself and my thought process as possible in my work. I like to expose my mind to no limits or rules, and follow an idea and vision until it explodes.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Florence, Italy in 2012 and finished in June 2014 in Israel, and was exhibit: 02/2015: Shoe Show at 360Mall, Kuwait. 06/2014: ITS(International Talent Support) competition- Accessories finalist 2014. Trieste, Italy. 02/2014: MUUSE: Vogue talents young vision accessories award 2014,Italy. 06/2013: MºBA 13: Fetishism in Fashion, Arnhem, Netherlands. 2012: SLEM-Waalwijk- best graduation projects in footwear from academies around the world, Arnhem, Netherlands.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The designs were made with the Connex3 3D printing system allowed to take the Digital Materials technology to a higher level providing the a wide selection of different material that can be used simultaneously to form the art pieces. The Objet Digital Materials are programmable combinations of 3D printed resins that are formed on the tray during the printing process. In the new printing system it was able to use up to three resins simultaneously and provide with up to 46 standard different Digital Materials per build. The materials may differ in their mechanical characteristics and their appearance, depending on the basic resins properties. The project combined colored and transparent rigid materials, and transparent and black rubber-like materials. Together they formed Digital Material combinations that produced colored pieces of different transparency and flexibility in their different regions. Furthermore, parts had bendable regions that were formed by a tailor-made Digital material comprised of rubber-like and rigid microstructures engineered to allow movement in specific directions. The collection was a great technology demonstration showing that the new multi-material 3D printing technology can provide the designers with a tool for fabrication of very complex structures made of different materials never achievable before in one process.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimentions: 4.5mm x 8.5mm x 20mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The idea of the collection actually started from textile studies and research on conductive fabrics used in fencing. Studying the technology and mechanism used in fencing was the most important and interesting part of the collection for me and even led me to join a one-month beginners fencing class to deepen my research further. Only after working on my first prototype for the project, and after the research on transformation of the body and the movements, did I establish a connection between fencing and ballet. I found that ballet originated from fencing in the 14th century, and that they were both from the same family. Although I unfortunately was not able to use the conductive fabrics in my final designs, I did use 3D printing technology for the toe cups.

CHALLENGE:
Eliminating barriers and making the impossible possible gives me a sense of amazing satisfaction that I crave. For instance, it was initially impossible to stand straight on 90 degree shoes until it became possible by creating an underwater experience in a photo shoot collaboration with ITR studio, the "into the deep” series.
