To Quinn, design is an essential tool to solve the world’s problems. The world is continuously evolving every single day and new problems always arise as a result. Therefore, as a designer, he feels constantly challenged to use his problem-solving skills to address environment, services and social issues.
Quinn draws inspiration from all sorts of architecture and thereafter incorporates it into his designs. He also likes to place of emphasis on detailing and simplicity. For his design, Quinn chose the colour white as the core as it is easy to match with: in other words, it is selfless. Hence, his inspiration for this design was using the tone-on-tone approach and overlapping with hidden subtle details.
About the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes: Creative minds across Singapore took a chance on their vision and joined the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes Design Competition, organised by TaF.tc. After a 4-day Digital Footwear Design workshop, they designed their very own sneaker mini-collections according to the theme “Modern Artistry”, which were brought to life and now available for pre-orders.
All sneakers were designed using TENCEL™ fabrics. TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers are material made from sustainably-grown and procured tree fibres, manufactured by Lenzing. Lenzing has supplied TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers as part of the sneaker design process of the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes. Find out more on their Instagram!
