FIELD by Dominic Wilcox?
Showing at Entratalibera, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan from the 14th to the 19th of April.
Dominic Wilcox is very pleased to be showing his artworks and designs at Entratalibera.
The creations on show include ‘Field', an installation made from over 500 eco-friendly Terra Plana shoes and shoelaces that rise into the air as though growing towards the light. The featured shoe is the Terra Plana ‘Pop'.
?Corso Indipendenza 16?
This is Dominic Wilcox's second collaboration with Terra Plana; a reinterpretation of his succesful Field installation in 2009, London Design Festival.
For this project, Dominic wanted to explore issues of ecology & sustainability; for Terra Plana these are foundation principles of the company...
The POP was selected because unlike most shoes, that use upwards of 30 components, a lot of heat setters and glue, the ‘Terra Plana Pop' is designed with efficiency in mind using minimum glue, components and processes.
The result is a truly modular shoe that is lightweight, flexible and ergonomically crafted and boasts an interchangeable sole. Making the Pop easy to repair and personalise.
