Adidas 6-piece Shoe...

I'm not sure if I buy the "green-cause" marketing of this shoe, but if you're at all interested in fabrication, I thought this was kind of cool. It's a 6-piece shoe assembled with little-to-no-glue. So the 6 pieces are sewn, and the 7th piece is glued, so it's actually the 7-piece shoe. The "green theory" is that because the cuts are so calculated that Adidas wastes less material. Anyway, I thought the fabrication part was fascinating. It isn't seamless, but the seams are pretty clean.

This shoe reminds me of Heather Dewey-Hagborg's shoe design in Tucker's Industrial Design class at ITP.

Also, I thought this chair was cool. You can flip the swatches of upholstery to change the pattern and design.
