A revolution in fashion. In the year 2031, functionality will
surpass the looks of products. What if different disciplines
such as health, technology and fashion merge? And the
Eastern world and the Western world connect?

Meet QI, by Filling Pieces.
BALANCE YOUR QI

Bridging gaps between personal elements.


THE FILLING PIECES QI-COVER
This is a soft and flexible cover that triggers energy pressure points in your feet to reduce complaints such as stress, fatigue and headaches by combining the Eastern acupuncture technique with Western technology. The concept is based on the ancient Chinese belief 'QI’, which stands for vital energy. ‘QI' flows through each person, when a person is stressed, his or her body blocks 'QI'. This product of Filling Pieces gives you the opportunity to regain harmony between body and mind in a fast-paced society with lots of pressure, technology and burn-outs, where balance is easily lost. Your progress in complaints can be tracked through the QI-APP because it is linked to the cover by a technological chip. Furthermore, you can connect with the Filling Pieces QI-community, start a conversation and support each other. The cover is innovative and distinctive because different disciplines such as technology, health and fashion melt together and create an innovative functionality of clothing. This technique has been recognised by acupuncturist Gerrit Bijlsma
