Studio Wrap

Studio Wrap

The Nike Studio Wrap is crafted to help women make the most of workouts typically done in bare feet. I am talking about yoga and the likes. Designed as modular wrap, the system includes a ribbon and a flat sole. The goal is to provide barefoot training with an innovative support that helps enhance the fitness training and protect the feet from callouses.

At first glance it may look like a random exercise in seating design but Philippe’s intention was seating for real people and real people come in all different shapes, sizes, and sit different ways. The question then became how do you design for the many and make it all flow together – confluences.

It’s the most gorgeous folding bike out there and an IF Gold winner. Hit the jump for the podcast and sketches! We love sketches!
