Nike Flyknit aero-static dome
During Milan Design Week, and on the occasion of the launch of the Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM and Magista boot, both characterized by Flyknit engineered construction, Nike has decided to partner with Taiwanese innovator and architect Arthur Huang, founder of Miniwiz.
Exploring the biomimicry inherent to Nike Flyknit, the Aero-static Dome – installed within the charming courtyard of Palazzo Clerici – captures the force and resistance of the wind. By efficiently harnessing this power, Miniwiz has created a structure that is solely supported by buoyancy making it the lightest structure of its magnitude.
Sartoria was happy to assure the overall creative direction of the project and thus, make this exciting partnership between Miniwiz and Nike happen. Needless to say, we also supervised the execution, to make sure that everything was in its place.
