If you’re a fashion designer and don’t know what rotational molding (aka rotomolding) is, you’re probably not alone. Rotomolding somehow made its way to Marloes ten Bhömer‘s vocabulary and the end result is a provocative and futuristic pair of heels that are to die for.

When fashion fuses with technology in the production arena, what you end up with are innovative and experimental forms that are simply “otherworldy” (borrowing from Ponoko’s own words) Thanks Ponoko!
