CONVERSATION SERIES

Why are we doing this contest?

Before the Laceless Challenge we recorded a series of great conversations with Matthew Leslie, community manager Laceless Design, Christian Decker, CEO of DESMA and Nicoline van Enter, cofounder of Footwearology. This first one explains why we are doing this contest. We talk about how manufacturing will change in the future and how that affects the role of designers.
