The last stage of the Vibram Sole Factor Mobile Lab

The last stage of the Vibram Sole Factor Mobile Lab

Andrea Tuzio · 2 weeks ago · Style

After the success of the first two stages – dedicated to mountain biking and trail running – Vibram launched the last virtual stage of the Vibram Sole Factor Mobile Lab focused on the lifestyle, sneaker and especially green world, offering the possibility to customize sneakers, boots and derby shoes with a sole made with the new Vibram N-OIL compound, created with 90% natural materials and dyed with natural pigments from plants and roots.

This innovative compound represents the Italian company’s solution to offer a sustainable alternative: created with 90% natural materials and dyed with 100% natural pigments from plants and roots.

Those who wish can request the replacement of their sole with a Vibram sole made with the new Vibram N-OIL compound: the iconic Vibram Carrarmato design – ideal on more structured shoes such as boots or boots – or with a Vibram “flat” sole, perfect for sneakers or casual shoes.

Anyone who is interested in participating and trying this new compound by Vibram can register on the Vibram Testerplace platform until November 27th.

The user who made the registration and submitted the request will be contacted by the Vibram Sole Factor team that will evaluate, together with the customer, the feasibility of resurfacing. Once the feasibility has been confirmed, Vibram will organize for free the collection of the shoes and the return when the work is finished.

This project emphasizes Vibram’s great commitment to the implementation of innovative procedures in production processes, in order to optimize the environmental and social impact.

Benoit Lapray’s superheroes invade Paris

Benoit Lapray’s superheroes invade Paris

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 days ago · Photography

Strolling a little romantically through the streets of Paris, Benoit Lapray had the brilliant idea of replacing the city’s monuments with the heroes of pop culture.

Superheroes, famous protagonists of science fiction movies and even cartoons clamorously take the place of the statues that adorn the French capital.

It is not the first time that the French photographer does such work, long ago he had imagined them far away from the chaotic metropolis, wandering alone between mountains and hills, see here.

“It’s a way to emphasize that these science fiction heroes are now part of the world’s cultural heritage,” says Lapray.

The project was created in collaboration with creative studio 95 Magenta.
A long and complex work, initially made on film, not using any digital camera.

Subsequently, the negatives were digitized and retouched, and then we added our superheroes, which we hold so dear.
Below, we leave you all the photos of Paris, which were captivated by all the heroes of Benoit Lapray.

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Collater.al Contributors · 5 days ago · Photography

The photographs of Roeg Cohen are intimate and seductive, talking about life, memory and eternity. His shots tell the most personal aspects of his subjects, they are enigmatic images full of meaning.

Roeg started photography at the age of thirty, but his artistic level is far from immature. He uses photography to express his creativity, it tells as much about himself as about those on the other side of the lens, it communicates independence, courage and boldness.

What Roeg Cohen seems to have with his subjects is an intense and sincere connection. The protagonists of his photographs communicate through body and eyes. They are immortalized in different situations and express opposite and complementary feelings: quiet, peace, silence but also tumult, tension and revolt.

His photographs evoke sensations that are difficult to express in words, which is why we let his images speak for themselves.
Look at a selection here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.

“I Giorni Necessari”, the lockdown through the shots of Monia Marchionni

“I Giorni Necessari”, the lockdown through the shots of Monia Marchionni

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Photography

How many days do we have to stay locked down? This is the question Monia Marchionni has heard her 5-year-old daughter ask dozens and dozens of times during the lockdown. This is the question we all asked ourselves, looking out of our windows into the silent world. It’s the question we didn’t know how to answer at first and then, over time, it became the question we didn’t want to answer.

The days we needed. This is Monia‘s answer, certainly more sensible than many others we have heard.

Monia Marchionni, born in 1981, is a photographer from the Marche region, from Fermo to be precise. After a diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts, a degree in Philosophy, a specialization in Contemporary Art History and work experience in the field of installation, she decided to dedicate herself exclusively to photography.

Since her first works, from the photographic series “Never Again the Fog in the Desert” taken in Chile and “Fermo Visioni Extra Ordinarie”, Monia has won several national and international awards.

Today, however, we want to focus on her latest project, which was born during the quarantine and which takes its title from the answer given to her daughter, “I Giorni Necessari” (The days we needed).

Through delicate shots, deliberately presented as diptychs, Monia Marchionni opens the doors of her house to us during those 56 days that it took to get the situation under control.

Like that of all of us, the photographer’s life was abruptly changed and the outside world became something to be seen, while the inside of her home was transformed into a new object of analysis of her art. The eye, and with it the lens, rest on family members, hands and faces, trying to tell a long period of waiting, boredom, fear, sacrifice, death, but also love.

It is precisely the latter, in fact, love for loved ones, a rediscovered love, which shines through more than anything else, and this suspended time and privations have made it even more essential.
