This futuristic design inspired by New York's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum leaves an impression of the foot floating in a classic court shoe. The straps echo Frank Lloyd Wright's spiral design for the exterior.
However, put into production 20 years later, the Guge model lost a sizable chunk of the drawing charme.
