To launch the emergent FUTURECRAFT 4D, adidas Brand Design partnered with Miniac Films to create a film that harnesses the spirit of unyielding innovation and discovery in their quest to produce a hyper-personalized running shoe. With striking visuals that usher in a sense of rising from the confines of the imagination, “FUTURECRAFT,” is a cinematic and artful look at what feels like it should be impossible in the moment. FUTURECRAFT 4D is a pioneering partnership between adidas and Carbon, a company working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Together, they are upending traditional manufacturing with the ability to design and deliver a truly customized product made possible through the marriage of athletic research and 3D printing. Part alchemy, part upheaval, Miniac – in close collaboration with adidas Brand Design – employed a reductive, layered approach to FUTURECRAFT; juxtaposing and counter-weighing images, sound, and language to describe this complex interweaving of humanity, science, art, design, technology, and data.
