Bamboo copters soars, creating an iconic trace of New Balance footprint.
Inspired by the bamboo copter, the work starts with the pursuit of self and bravery, enumerating the iconic shoes. The line connects the brand’s heritage and warmth of the artisan, collecting the design aesthetics that are bold to challenge and quench the classics of the times.
Artist Ching-ke Lin employs the resilience and elasticity of bamboo to embrace a culture of creativity and technique that transcends time and space. He stacks bamboo copters, adding a playful twist to a childhood toy. The staggering of the acrylic rods changes the pattern of the light and shadows. By interlocking the bamboo wings with transparent sticks, multiple angles create a different visual image. The NB logo is presented on the front, with the light flowing through the space to showcase the brand's centuries-old pursuit of excellence in shoe making. The NB shoe silhouette is presented on the side, with a replica of the iconic NB 990, leading every moment of the walking in a childlike manner. The interplay of craftsmanship and contemporary innovation gives us a glimpse of New Balance in a different light, which moves into a new era of classics.
