Award winning London-based footwear designer Chau Har Lee will be showing her 3D printed RapidForm Shoe at the Aram Gallery's upcoming Send to Print / Print to Send show.
Chau Har Lee has been designing and hand making shoes for more than a decade. Says she, "My designs span conceptual showpieces to elegant and original yet accessible footwear. I often employ a crossover of making and manufacturing processes from fields other than shoemaking in order to realise my concepts."
"This gives me much scope for creativity in the design stage by removing boundaries associated with traditional methods. However, my knowledge of traditional shoemaking helps me know how and where I can break these boundaries. Importantly, although my most conceptual designs are showpieces, they are still built to adorn the foot."
RapidForm is one of several 3D printed works that will be exhibited in Send to Print / Print to Send at the Aram Gallery from January 13th to February 25th, 2012.
