ILE (Innovation Lab ECCO) explores, creates and delivers projects embracing alternative production methods, advanced materials, new technologies and experiential solutions. Results of the work can be found via limited edition collections at our concept store in Amsterdam, W-21.
QUANT-U is a footwear customisation project that combines real-time analysis, data-driven design, and additive manufacturing to create the most comfortable shoe possible. The process begins with a 2-step analysis: an anatomical scan of your foot structure, and wearable sensors measuring your movement. The resulting information is converted into a functional midsole form and 3D printed in silicone. Each midsole is based on your foot shape and natural movements.
To be launched in April 2018. Exclusively at W-21 Amsterdam.
