Joris de Groot is a designer who takes the factory
as point of origin. Inspired by production processes,
his work departs from in-depth research into the
techniques and materials which can be found at the
factory floor.


For the In4nite II project, Studio Joris de Groot has
carefully examined the various techniques that are
applied in the manufacturing of car interiors, and
translated this into a collection of shoes. One of the
current uses for Colback® is its implementation in the
automotive industry, where it is incorporated in the
upholstery of car interiors.


 

 

 


 

 


 


Joris de Groot is a designer who takes the factory as point of origin. Inspired by production processes, his work departs from in-depth research into the techniques and materials which can be found at the factory floor.  

For the In4nite II project, Studio Joris de Groot has carefully examined the various techniques that are applied in the manufacturing of car interiors, and translated this into a collection of shoes. One of the current uses for Colback is its implementation in the automotive industry, where it is incorporated into the upholstery of car interiors.


 

Having researched the materials that comprise
car upholstery, Joris shifted his focus towards
the moulding of the material. In the research and
development centre of Low & Bonar, the quality of the
material is tested in order to minimize irregularities
within the interior. A linear pattern is applied in this
moulding process, to monitor the ways in which
the material behaves when it is formed. Inspired by
this process, Joris appropriated the technology in a
new way by converting it to form shoes. During this
process, he explored the tufted Colback® material
by playing with the linear patterns; the details
and inconsistencies that emerged constitute the
aesthetic character of his collection. These reveal the
techniques as well as the materials behind the design.


From the tufted and moulded material of the body
and the carpeting, to the finishing procedures of
car mats that round off the edges of the design,
the diverse range of techniques that are applied
in the manufacturing of car interiors come together
in this collection of shoes
