This project was inspired by my involvement in dance and a fascination with organic geometry. To a dancer shoes are more than just a tool. They are also a mean of expression and my goal was to elevate the status of the shoe taking them from the floor to being openly displayed on the wall.
Mounted flush to the wall by means of velcro, the shoe rack is extremely stable.
Shoes are stored via slotting and inlaying. The shoes utilize gravity and act as cantilevers. To the right is the shoe rack in relation to the human scale, I am 5’8. This shoe rack has 7 components and can hold 11 pairs of shoes.
