Tinker Hatfield is an architect who started working at Nike designing showrooms, and ended up being VP of design. He was behind the design of the now classic Air Max shoes. On this short interview he tells how the Pompidou Centre by Renzo Piano influencied his shoe design, in terms of exposed systems and color.
For me, beiong almost and architect and loving sneakers, specially the air max model, makes me think how cool it is to combine both worlds...so how good would be to be a good architect and also desing "the model" for a brand like nike, huh??
Well Tinker Hatfield did it, the rest is history...hehe, let's say he become a good inspiration for me.
