Support a shoes manufacturing company to set up some single-brand stores with recycled and circular materials. In particular, the project focused on the floor, characterized by paths that guide the client towards different models of footwear, and part of the wall coverings where, alongside the exhibitors, technical functional areas were provided to test the footwear before the purchase.
Modular coverings, flexible and customizable over time to meet seasonal needs. In addition to the research and selection phase of the most suitable recycled and circular materials to be used for the project, a series of tests were carried out on the materials as regards coloring and resistance to stress. The result is identified in a new innovative shop model where the customer can immediately test the new footwear in ordinary and extraordinary situations in addition to the classic walk.

The material and economic circularity of some sportswear clothes was measured, starting with the yarn and ending with the definition of three different end-of-life scenarios. Thanks to the results obtained from the economic circularity, it was been possible to identify new solutions for the use of production waste, reducing production costs and evaluating materials alternatives for clothing accessories.
In addition, the environmental and economic benefits for new market strategies were evaluated, with the transition from the sale of the product to the service.
The participation of supply chain companies to the project have permetted to assess the possibilities of sustainable innovation in products and packaging.
