The Divine Intervention shoes are collaboration between Product Artist Lionel Theodore Dean and Digital Sculptor Philip van der Walt. The first in the FutureFactories Raconteur series of 3d printed figurines; the shoes feature two separate tableaus of Victorian gothic angels. A total of 19 exquisitely detailed figures support the sole in an ecstasy of nouveau baroque romanticism.
Launched on the 3D Printshow New York catwalk in February; the piece is fully functional. They are 3D printed in Selective Laser Sintered (SLS) nylon, electroformed in copper and silver plated.
