Nike presents 'The Nature of Motion'

Known for shaping the future of sport and athletics, Nike has teamed up with 10 talented designers - Martino Gamper, Lindsey Adelman and Clara von Zweigbergk among them - for 'endless explorations of movement'. The resulting collaborations will explore 'natural motion' through conceptual and practical installations including Adelman's plant-inspired lights, Gamper's rhythmic drums and Max Lamb's brutalist blocks. Nike technology – like flykit textiles – will abound in perfect synergy with the diverse projects.
