Drumheads made from a foamposite used in Nike shoes

What could Nike possibly have in common with drumheads? Flyknit. It is a foamposite, or engineered mesh used for padding the inside of Nike sports footwear. It is flexible and highly durable at the same time.


During The Nature of Motion exhibition, which took place in Milan, designer Martino Gamper presented this kind of “designer” skins. Do BeatIt viewers think this idea has any future?
