United Nude designs a 3-D shoe that can be printed at home.
United Nude has been dabbling in 3-D printing for a while (See recent collaborations with Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen.) and it’s no stranger to combining a high-tech aesthetic and technology in its shoes. Now the company’s latest venture is giving consumers a taste of the next wave of design. On Aug. 6, United Nude unveiled a 3-D-printed shoe called Float, created using 3D Systems’ compact consumer printer Cube, at its New York flagship store.
