Yesterday we presented the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM sneaker collection and today we can take a closer look at the special presentation of the shoes at Milan Design Week 2014. In collaboration with Arthur Huang, the Taiwanese founder of Miniwiz, the brand developed the Aero-Static Dome in Milan. At the base of the sculpture, nine glass boxes each hold the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM sneaker, with the knitted upper developing into the anchor of a massive overheard metallic inflated form. The structure perfectly communicates the strengths of Nike’s Flyknit technology, which include lightweight, form-fitting optimal performance and enhanced sustainability. Situated at the Palazzo Clerici in Milan, the structure was inspired by the aerodynamics of Leonardo da Vinci’s triangular parachute and Alexander Graham Bell’s tetrahedral kite.
