To celebrate the Nike x ACRONYM collection launch, Solebox invited Berlin designers to get creative both physically and digitally. The co-creation workshop was led by Errolson Hugh, the co-founder and leader in design at ACRONYM. At the Solebox Berlin x ACRONYM x Nike Dynamics Lab, designers were able to create their very own 3D-printed heel clip. The final designs were put on exhibit by Solebox on February 10, 2022.
The exhibition showcased ten designs from the collective of Berlin creatives, showing off an extensive range of sculptural heel clips. The showcase also exhibited the process of creating the heel clips from tactile play to 3D printing. This creative space served as an opportunity for designers and fans to connect deeper to the collaboration.
To bring the designs and their processes to life, the exhibition was accompanied by a digital open-source platform that was able to host the open-source 3D files of all the heel clips. By doing this, ACRONYM created a database where people from all over the world are able to download and 3D print individual heel clips themselves. This makes the future accessible by extending the Solebox Berlin x ACRONYM x Nike Dynamics Lab into an open-source platform for global creativity. All of the heel clips are compatible with the ACRONYM x Nike Blazer Low. Visit the Dynamics Lab website to learn more about the designers and download the open-source 3D files.
