S/Lab ME:sh

Salomon RE-evolutionizes running with a shoe that’s unique to any human.

Salomon RE-evolutionizes running with a shoe that’s unique to any human. To demonstrate it in a playful experiment, we crafted a ME:sh for Lucy the australopithecus. With the help of paleoanthropologists specialized in motricity, the Salomon team retrieved Lucy’s data, and crafted a shoe that fits her perfectly using ME:sh’s 4 fit approach : • Anatomical fit, the shape of one’s foot : based on Lucy’s reconstructed foot (by paleoartist John Gurche), Salomon’s specialists and engineers were able to thermoform ME:sh’s structure, the ‘skeleton’, to fit her large V-shaped foot. • Biomechanical fit, how one runs : with the help of Dr. Druelle from the Laboratory for Functional Morphology of the University of Antwerp, Salomon adapted Lucy’s midsole to fit the way she moved. • Usage fit, where one runs : 3.2 million years ago, Lucy’s environment was no different than today’s, and therefore requires to be adapted with one of Salomon’s outsole technology. • Preference fit, what one wants to feel or look like : following Kilian’s preferences, Salomon assumed Lucy would have a taste for minimalism. They chose a full black color on every element of her ME:sh, and made it light to better feel nature.

Nico Vuignier's Poor-Man's Drone

The man behind last year's Centriphone viral clip came up with another unique approach to skiing.

Professional skier and filmmaker Nicolas Vuignier released his latest short film, once again entirely self-produced. The man behind last year's Centriphone viral clip came up with another demonstration of his unique visual approach to the art of skiing. More specifically, Vuignier reinterpreted the concept of aerial-videography by using a lightweight throwable device carrying an action camera. Based on AER, a product he backed on Kickstarter, he iterated and customised its design for it to perform what he had envisioned: a shot where the skier himself releases the camera while jumping, creating an unprecedented camera motion: “improving the design of the device was the easy part because the original product is already very good. The real challenge was to learn how to throw the device so that the shot would be well framed while I was performing an acrobatic trick. It’s a lot of things to think about at the same time.” It took the creative swiss athlete xxx weeks of trial and error in his home resort of Crans-Montana to achieve the visual result he was looking for. When asked how he would best describe the idea, he simply stated: “just think of a poor man’s selfie drone”.

Kalen Thorien, professional skier/adventurer, on a 270 mile, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada

Kalen Thorien, a professional skier and adventurer, decided to spend her summer on a 270 mile, 18 day, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range in the Western United States. Your immediate question is probably “Why?”, well, Kalen probably says it best, “We spend a lot of time seeking answers, hoping for outside forces to propel us into an elevated realm of thinking, the simplicity of a walk in the woods can provide the impermanence that we so often overlook. Out there it is uncluttered and simplified.”
