Greyglassfibreshoe / 2004

Design evolution of the previous Carbonfibreshoe, made from a layered piece of fibreglass pressed in a two-piece mould. The combination of form and materials serve a dual purpose in generating a typology that gives the shoe its strength.

In order to escape the widely used fashion high-gloss photography format, Marloes ten Bhömer commissioned DESSO to produce a carpet depicting a photograph of the “Carbonfibreshoe”. The image has been divided into a certain amount of pixels that match the amount of woollen yarn strands that make up the carpet. A machine shoots the yarns into a perforated metal plate, after which these are trimmed, a backing applied and the carpet removed from the plate.
