Biomimicry Shoe by Marieka Ratsma Kostika Spaho

 

Dutch designer Marieka Ratsma and Architect Kostika Spaho have teamed up together to create this interesting experiment in biomimicry and fashion.

 

The design quite obviously uses technology similar to Solid Thinking to analyze the forces applied on a shape and then applies material efficiently only to areas where it is needed for load bearing purposes, resulting in an organic bone-like distribution. We’ve posted many similar projects and methods before, for example Mercedes and Opel’s experimentation, as well as an entire post exactly about Solid Thinking.
