Nike’s Nature Of Motion Exhibition Explores Function And Movement
Ten designers create installations out of Nike's high-tech materials
Nike invited 10 progressive contemporary designers to explore movement through various mediums for ‘The Nature of Motion’ at Milan Design Week 2016. Nike Design aims to advance the potential of the human body through a synergy of form, function and motion. Some of the works are conceptual (foreshadowing future technologies), while others are practical. They were inspired by the on-going pursuit of natural motion and many use high-tech materials unique to Nike, such as Flyknit.
Lindsey Adelman’s light installation comprises two fixtures, each incorporating multiple phases of natural development into a cohesive form that communicates through vibrational movement. Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno designed oversized floor lamps that feature diffusers made with Nike Flyknit, forming an installation inspired by the beauty of an athlete in action.
