United Nude teamed up with 3D Systems to create another live 3D printing installation. This time the exhibition will take place at the Level Shoe District, the largest shoe department in the largest shopping mall in the world, the Dubai Mall.
Rem D. Koolhaas and his team at United Nude created the new 3D printed shoe inspired by sea corals and to be manufactured on 3D Systems CubePro. It is made out of a 3D printed wedge attached to the wearer’s foot by a textile ribbon and a 3D printed buckle. There are numerous ways for the ribbon to be attached so you can not only choose a colour but also be creative about how to wear this unique shoe.
The Coral Shoe was specially designed for Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience at the Level Shoe District.
“Designing 3D printed shoes is a lot of fun! The technology offers a lot of freedom in shape, while the process from concept to the final product is much quicker than with conventional shoes. We have been at the forefront of this technology in the shoe business and we are doing more every day with it.” Rem D Koolhaas
