The visual outcome for the solid, floating framework is astoundingly galvanized by the Flyknit technology. The designer’s prime inspiration was the power of aerodynamics of Leonardo da vinci’s triangular parachute & Alexander graham bell’s tetrahedral kite, the floating design that not only transmits strength & wind resistance, but is supported only by vertical buoyancy.

This innovative technique literally comprises yarns and fabric variations that are highly manufactured with precise minutiae. They are explicitly appropriate for lightweight, formfitting, virtually seamless upper and augmented sustainability. As far as the construction is concerned the mesh knitting is incessant attached and becomes a mainstay for a massive, metallic, inflated form above.
