Celebrating Old and New Technology at Air Max Day 2017

March 26, 1987 brought us one of the most infamous sneakers in history—the Air Max 1. While Air Max technology was originally introduced eight years earlier in the Tailwind, the Air Max 1 was the first time the air technology was made at a larger scale and visible from the outside. Since its debut as both a function and fashion staple with the Air Max 1, air technology has been through quite the evolution. With its countless appearances in coveted collaborations with athletes, brands and sneaker stores like Atmos, to its key role in various sneaker silhouettes, Nike’s air technology has made itself a staple in just about every sneaker collector’s closet.

The original Air Max 1 

Yesterday, Nike hosted events celebrating Air Max’s big 30th birthday. While other countries celebrated in their own ways, here in New York City, we had a go big or go home mentality, as per usual. Celebrations were hosted in multiple locations throughout the city, each with their own surprises. Here’s a taste of what went down during the big birthday bash at our three favorite locations: 

The Nike Air Vapormax

Before getting into specific locations, it’s important to note the star of yesterday’s show: The Nike Air Vapormax. This brand new silhouette takes Nike’s air technology to the next level with a sole that incorporates huge air pockets that make the Air Max 1’s visible air tech look like nothing. With previous Air Max models, you’re walking on a sole with air as a small buffer, but with the Vapormax, you’re basically just walking on air. 

Sneakeasy at Nike Clubhouse

At the Sneakeasy exhibit tucked away in Nike’s Clubhouse, Nike product specialists walked visitors through the history of air technology and explained Air Vapormax features. 

“The Nike Air Vapormax is the lightest, most high performing, most flexible Air Max we’ve ever created, weighing at just 8.8 oz in a men’s size 9 and with a range of motion similar to the Nike Free RN.”

There was also a chance for visitors to customize their own pair of Vapomax sneakers in an ultra fancy Nike id room, a room dedicated to the history of Nike’s air technology and a small exhibit centered around this year’s Vote Forward contest.

The third floor of the exhibit had a few more surprises—my favorite being a wall of custom Air Max sneakers designed by Alex Lee and Ava Nirui. Their cheeky designs all play on the name ‘Air Max’ in different ways:

“Food Processair”
“Horticultair”
“Erasair”
“Air RC”

Nike Soho

Nike’s new multi-level retail complex in Soho was the hub of the celebration, housing multiple installations, interactive activities and most importantly, a ton of free stuff (no complaints). My favorite display was a huge wall of different Air Max models accompanied by a giant movable screen. As you move the screen across the wall, different descriptions pop up over the sneaker you’re looking at.

NikeLab 21 Mercer

NikeLab released three very special sneakers, all incorporating the Vapormax sole. The most exciting release—and I’m guessing you’ll agree—is the Marc Newson x Nike NikeLab Air Vapormax. This isn’t the first time the Industrial Designer has collaborated with Nike (remember these?), and I certainly hope it’s not the last:

At NikeLab 21 Mercer

A very limited number of the funky sneaker-moccasins were released yesterday. Unfortunately, the smallest size released was an 8 men’s, and I’m a 7. Purchasing was out of the question, but that didn’t take away from the nerdy moment I was able to enjoy. I have to say, they’re very comfortable and fun to wear—the Vapormax sole is extremely light and easy to move around in.

I wish you were mine.

Air Max Day was a fun time all around. I always enjoy sneaker events because of the pure enthusiasm fans and collectors have about shoes—maybe because it justifies my obsession. There’s nothing like seeing or being a sneakerhead in a sneaker store, on a sneaker holiday—except maybe seeing or being a kid in a candy store the day after Halloween (when all the candy is half-priced, of course). Till next year, Air Max Day!

Stockholm Design Week 2017

The largest annual tradeshow for Scandinavian design takes place—fittingly, perhaps—in the middle of the long Nordic winter, when the temperature is typically hovering around freezing. Even so, the quality and quantity of the products and projects brings some 50,000 visitors to the Stockholmsmässan over the course of a week. Taking place from February 6–12, the city’s eponymous design week coincides with the Furniture & Light Fair, which ran from the 7–11th this year, featuring a tasteful selection of new and recent work by independent designers and studios alongside more commercial offerings.

We undertook a whirlwind tour of the fair, which was divided into three main sections with the usual tradeshow fare, as well as a number of special guest exhibitions throughout the Stockholmsmässan. While it was nice to see blockbuster booths from well-known Scandinavian brands such as HAY, Muuto, Normann Copenhagen, Menu, Kvadrat, etc., it was the independent brands and student presentations that offered the latest and greatest projects. 

Here are just a few highlights from the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2017.

Originating from the Hancock Shaker Village in Massachusetts, “Furnishing Utopia” is an ongoing collaboration between over a dozen designers, who have revisited traditional typologies developed by “the first minimalists” from the late 1700s. The Shaker Design Project debuted at NYCxDesign last year and the latest edition includes new pieces alongside the first collection; participants include Core favs Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Chris Specce, Studio Gorm, Gabriel Tan, Zoë Mowat, Jonah Takagi, and many more.
In the foreground: “Trestle Table” by Studio Gorm; “Brush Study” by Zoë Mowat; “Stepstool” by Anderssen & Voll
“Hancock Basket” by Studio Tolvanen; Broom and Sconce by Tom Bonamici
“Handy” folding ladder and rake by Chris Specce; “Secretary Desk” and “Woven Stools” by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio

Smaller objects such as “The Hand” by Studio Tolvanen, baskets by Studio Gorm, “Brethern Doorstops” by Gabriel Tan, and measuring tools by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio
The Danish Design Maker exhibition included 20 projects and prototypes, such as the “Sui” chair by Studio FEM
“Plusboxes” by Wednesday Architecture 

Muuto was among the many Scandinavian brands at the fair.
Curated by second-year “Design + Change” students, Linnaeus University‘s exhibition showcased speculative projects by third-year “Design and Sustainability students.
UOK” by Sofie Röjne hypothesizes products to suppress the five senses.
Xenotransplantation” by Ebba Johansson addresses organ transplanting between humans and animals, and vice versa
Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture presented “Under Bar Himmel,” a collection of bent-steel chairs.

Konstfack grad Keisuke Kawase
TORU hails from Barcelona
Studio Foy is based in Oslo

Jaime Hayon was this year’s Guest of Honor
The Spanish designer created a pavilion in the atrium of the Stockholmsmässan 
Hayon was the 14th Guest of Honor for the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
