Heels made from aluminum foam, designed by the cosmos

These are the footwear we might think about Woman Gaga would put on if she have been Cinderella. As a lot as they seem like crumpled aluminum foil, although, their designers, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves, have been impressed by one thing quite a bit greater: the tough floor of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the place ESA’s Philae lander is at present sleeping. Within the absence of precise Churyumov-Gerasimenko samples, the duo collectively referred to as Studio Swine, 3D-scanned meteorites on the Pure Historical past Museum in London after securing sponsorship from Microsoft. They meshed numerous scanned surfaces collectively and shaped the footwear’ base form utilizing aluminum foam. A CNC mill then scooped out a part of the construction for the wearer’s ft (these are footwear, in any case), which was then lined with mushy Italian leather-based. Regardless of the rugged extremely-metallic look, the designers declare these heels are almost weightless, as aluminum foam is ninety % air. We guess trend does not all the time have to harm in any case.
