MyShell256 by Sharon Golan
The MyShell256 shoes by Israeli graduate designer Sharon Golan are each assembled from four parts, strapped to the wearer’s foot with silicon bands.
” …My shoe collection originated from a minimalistic design concept, which at the same time allows for great variety. The inspiration came from the terrestrial crust, which is shaped by internal pressure and stress- it cracks, swells, moves, and responds to any changes, in the same way as the foot.
My set of shoes combines basic shapes, different techniques with industrial materials. 16 modular units are inspired by four models – parts of fruit peel, egg, earth, and shell. These units are can be assembled using silicon-rubber bands, resulting in 256 different shaped shoes.
The project is accompanied by an interactive internet site (coming soon), showing the entire set of shoes.
