Cutt[h]ings

(Semester project, 2013)

The concept for the shoe is based on an upcycling project. The idea was to reuse cuttings – waste of metal from industry - and to combine them with used accessories to give things like shoes, belts or jewelry a new life. The final outcome of the project is a shoe with a new exceptional heel. The transparent resin allows you to see the soul of the heel - the cuttings - and acts as a symbol that sends the message: Take care of our environment and think of new ways to re- and upcycle the waste of the industrial process.
