SOAR Running design and craft apparel that does justice to the commitment and passion of runners globally. Encompassing textile innovation, pioneering design technology, sports science and the real-world experiences of runners.
For Shoreditch Design Triangle our exhibition explores ‘Design for Endurance’, including pieces from SOAR Proto Lab. Proto Lab is our “what if?” and “can we?”. It’s where we push the boundaries in design for running. How do you apply a printed graphene circuit to a race vest, how do you make a one-piece aero suit for real-world marathon running, what happens when you apply SOAR ergonomic pattern cutting techniques to a pair of jeans?
Chaired by The Big Run and SOAR Long Form host Danny Easton, our panel talk ‘Running, A Creative Approach’ on the evening of Thursday 21st, will be followed by drinks and music.
A diverse panel of runners including Andy Baddeley (Olympian, The Running Channel), Tim Soar (SOAR founder) and Kimiko Ninomiya (founder of Hot Boys Athletics), discuss how creativity and design manifest in, and shape, all areas of running, from kit to training, community and beyond.
As part of Shoreditch Design Triangle we’re opening our doors on Tuesday 19th September for a late night viewing and reception. Visitors will also be invited to join unique running design tours. Each Saturday 16th and 23rd at 11am we’ll take in the Shoreditch Design Triangle sights and hear first-hand from designers and curators at selected exhibitions, using running to navigate the local design community. Joining us is free, with secure bag drop and open to runners of all abilities. Please sign-up before joining as spots are limited.
