ALIVEFORM, an emerging footwear brand established in 2022, is revolutionizing the future of shoes with its innovative 3D printed designs. In a world where sustainability and green practices are gaining momentum, ALIVEFORM embraces the use of bio-based materials and organic growth to provide a greener tomorrow.
The brand recently launched a collaboration with London’s HOUSE OF ERRORS, introducing the TOPO-01 slip-on model with ribbed patterns that create a layered effect. This collaboration marks HOUSE OF ERRORS’ first foray into the world of footwear and points to ALIVEFORM’s growing influence in the global marketplace.
Inspired by nature, Pek Shun Ping, the founder of ALIVEFORM, draws inspiration from natural forms such as perforated leaves and coral growth patterns, incorporating them into his designs.
The ALIVEFORM design process begins with 3D modeling and analysis of the printability of the design. Sample prints and proofs are then made, with adjustments made to ensure both aesthetics and functionality are met. Pek Shun Ping’s decision to pursue 3D printing instead of traditional shoe design techniques stems from his fascination with technology and his desire to pioneer the new era of footwear.
ALIVEFORM’s goal is to bring innovative 3D printed designs to a wider audience and promote acceptance of this manufacturing approach in the footwear industry. The latest mini collection “ARMIS” is inspired by nature’s protective designs, resembling the resilience of cacti and seashells that offer cushioning and support to the wearer.
ALIVEFORM’s pioneering spirit and commitment to sustainable practices position it as a brand at the forefront of shaping the future of footwear. With its innovative designs and eco-friendly approach, ALIVEFORM is redefining the possibilities of what footwear can be, paving the way for a more technologically advanced and sustainable industry.
