When you have a good idea, you should just do it. That’s probably why despite being a furniture show, at this year’s Salone del Mobile, Nike commissioned ten designers to show off their ideas based on the nature of motion.
To help you get back in the game, US architect Greg Lynn, made a microclimate chair designed specifically for basketball players. Made from carbon fibre, the chair uses thermo-electric elements to heat or cool the player between quarters.
British designer Max Lamb, moved audiences with his impressive installation; blocks of granite, aluminium, and polystyrene were made to float an invisible cloud of compressed air.
John Hoke, vice-president of global design at Nike, commented that the brand wanted “to continue to think about this idea of natural motion, which is the bedrock of Nike, and think about how we design for athletes that are constantly moving, and how that motion creates new languages, new designs and new problems for Nike to solve”.
