Errolson Hugh Visits the ACRONYM DYNAMICS LAB Presented by solebox
Last Saturday, to celebrate the release of the new ACRONYM x Nike Blazer Low collaboration, German retailer solebox hosted a creative space known as the ACRONYM DYNAMICS LAB. Select creators from the Berlin scene, along with ACRONYM founder and designer Errolson Hugh, engaged in a high-tech arts and crafts session to design and make custom heel clips for the new colab.
In effect an all-access customisation workshop, the guests and Hugh each employed various methods to design their heel clips. Some used the latest in computing software (with some help from 3D design specialists) to mock up their concepts. Others went old school and relied on tape, markers, and a steady hand. By the end of the session, there were 10 different clips, the final versions of which were precisely manufactured thanks to an on-site 3D printer.
The heel clips will be available for public viewing from February 10, plus the creators will be there to share their process and inspiration behind the designs. Launching soon is also a digital space for the ACRONYM DYNAMICS LAB, which will share open-source files of the heel clips, allowing fans to download, modify and print their own designs.
