Léi Zǔ shoe collection by Nicole Goymann and Christoph John

June 23rd, 2014 by retail design blog

The once hard cocoon is softened through boiling water and releases a single silk filament. By winding the silk strand and shaping the direction of its path, multiple design options in shoe design were explored. The silk thread remains in place due to its natural glue that will harden after it gets in contact with air. The name “Léi Zǔ” refers to the Chinese legendary empress, who invented the silk reel.

Designed by Nicole Goymann and Christoph John
