In October 2013, Central Saint Martins MA Material Futures students were invited to take part in a one day workshop organised by Nike, to celebrate the launch of their new Hyperfeel trainer.
Working with Dutch designer Bart Hess we aimed to visualise the haptics of footwear, and the meditative ritual of the run.
Our cushioned packages of permeable fabrics, shaving cream, baby oil and feather down simulated the ‘feel’ of running barefoot over urban tracts of grass. — at Nike1948.
