There is hidden magic in a shoe. We wear them all our lives, even some fairy tales are devoted to them. They play a vital role in the quality of our lifestyle.

The method conduct was a deconstruction, not only of a shoe but also of the way of thinking about the shoe.

The projects combine the world of industrial design with the world of apparel design, art with craft, tradition with modernity – through the form of shoes but also in the used fabrics, like leather and plastics. they are a combination of traditional shoemaker’s methods with new technologies like 3D scan, 3D printing, CNC milling. Shoes cast from the material developed especially for this purpose are the results of collaboration with a chemist.

The essence of this project is form – with reference to shape, material and emotions. I was inspired by Japanese aesthetic wabi-sabi which is based on seeking beauty in imperfection. In this collection the shoes are regarded as sculptures which also serve in practical usage.
