Description

A pair of asymmetrical shoes designed by Zaha Hadid for Melissa and manufactured by Grendene in injection moulded PVC. The design of these shoes evokes a continous transformation of movement, addressing the shoe as a worn object in motion. The design was developed using advanced computational modelling and 3D printing and rapid prototyping techniques to assist with refining the ergonomics of the shoe.
