Introduction into the project and some suggestions given on deciding on a direction.
Currently I have two proposals; Tennit and Comfort Design.
Tennit; making outdoor exploring safer
I want to design an easily compact-able temporary shelter, that works as a safety precaution when exploring the outdoors; Hiking, camping, hunting, racing. Encouraging people to have one of the necessities of survival when outdoors, without the packing hassle.
Comfort design; ways of customising users shoe experiences.
I want to design a football boot that is customised to the different users, it separates the structure of a shoe from the soft fabrics and uppers to provide a new experience when playing football. New experiences is what is driving new designs and my design will look art increasing comfort with different users and improving natural touch on the ball.
After discussion with peers they lead me to thinking about designing a shoe that has minimal impact on the environment during production. This lead me to my third proposal: combustshoe
Combustshoe: discovering natural biodegradable materials.
I want to explore a range of materials that can be used to replace the current synthetic fabrics used in shoe wear. Helping to reduce the waste from the shoe industry polluting the planet and designing a shoe that is eco friendly and renewable.
