Zaha Hadid, Lacoste, Melissa Shoes, 2008, 09

Zaha Hadid is an Iraqi-British Architect (Pritzker Architecture Prize 2004) whose distinct radical, fluid spaces would be impossible without the advent of CAD (computer-aided design) and digital fabrication techniques which give her almost infinite freedom to create her signature aesthetic of curving and fragmented geometry. Brazilian eco shoe company Melissa collaborated with Hadid to create a plastic moulded shoe with her distinctive fragmented geometry style. Hadid’s collaboration with Lacoste used dynamic fluid grids to create limited edition leather shoes that appear to defy gravity.
