Forget about the Sharknado, New Yorkâ€“based designers at SOFTlab have created a vortex of flowers that has taken over one Manhattan shoe store, bringing SOFTlab’s signature parametric forms to the modern shoe brand, Melissa. TheÂ SohoÂ storeÂ already grabbed design headlines when it opened its flagship location decked out in a custom-fabricated Corian interior by architecture firm Eight and Associated Fabrication. This latest design intervention is part ofÂ Melissa’s “We Are Flowers” campaign that used organic shapes and colors to inform its shoe line.
