3D Printed Rapid Form Shoe
Award winning London-based footwear designer Chau Har Lee will be showing her 3D printed RapidForm Shoe at the Aram Gallery’s upcoming Send to Print / Print to Send show. Chau Har Lee has been designing and hand making shoes for more than a decade. Says she, “My designs span conceptual showpieces to elegant and original yet accessible footwear. I often employ a crossover of making and manufacturing processes from fields other than shoemaking in order to realise my concepts.” “This gives me much scope for creativity in the design stage by removing boundaries associated with traditional methods. However, my knowledge of traditional shoemaking helps me know how and where I can break these boundaries. Importantly, although my most conceptual designs are showpieces, they are still built to adorn the foot.”

Having studied at Camberwell, the Royal College of Art, and Cordwainers College, England, Chau Har Lee has had an impressive design profile behind her, winning the Manolo Blahnik and ITS awards amongst others. A born creative, she is dedicated to using new and innovative materials whilst attempting to balance commercial viability and recognition for creativity as a designer.
