The project re-imagines functional design with circular materials.
Multidisciplinary designer Irina Flore is embarking on a collaborative project entitled Remix Maison with purpose-led footwear brand, Native Shoes and its proprietary material: Native Shoes Remix™.

The artist and brand have partnered to design and develop sculptural furniture made with materials created from reclaimed and repurposed footwear. The collection features eye-catching designs that reflect the present and future way of living while questioning one’s everyday actions and needs.

With the intention of creating functional and contemporary designs that replace traditional materials with more environmentally-conscious resources, Flore developed her sculptural structures exclusively using metal and Native Shoes Remix™.  Native Shoes Remix™ is a combination of EVA and rubber, the main components of the brand’s line of injection-molded footwear. These primarily mono-material shoes are collected at the end of their useful life, cleaned, and ground, giving them renewed life for new projects and products.
Both environmentally conscious and practical, Flore and Native Shoes’ first Remix Maison designs are sculptural benches designed for an entryway and built to serve multiple functions: a seat, a tray area for small items, a shoe holder, or a coat hanger. These sculptures’ various forms are inspired by Flore’s conceptual drawings and their functions fluctuate slightly from one design to another.

About the designer

Irina\'s design practice focuses on functional art -everyday objects. The statement pieces that Irina likes to design are objects that tell a story. Each design has an elaborated process with research on material, form, and function. The fabrication and the process is essential aspect of the narrative of her designs. She collaborates with artisans, and this is a significant part of her practice because she grew up in a family of craftspeople in a small town in Romania. Her design practice focuses on advanced technologies but also on old traditions and crafts.
