Labor day… the traditional little 24 Hours in which the hard worker gets to believe for a nanosecond that anybody/the system gives a shit about him/her. I never really understood labor day. What are we the people that work our asses off supposed to do on this day? Celebrate our rights? Celebrate our jobs? Celebrate that we got one day off? Use this day to start a Read More…
I went to the opening of the exhibition: “STARKER AUFTRITT!” at the Grassi museum in Leipzig on March 27th 2013. I was there to see all the amazing shoes the two lovely curators Liza Snook, founder of the virtual shoe museum and Sabine Epple put together.
Hundreds of the most fascinating shoes ever made were protected inside thick elegant glass vitrines as if diamond tiaras were on display. That is exactly what I demanded for the Jeremy Scott x adidas poodle when I was asked by the curators to lend it to them from my private collection. They really delivered a great show and gave the poodles a worthy place in shoe design history!
Bare in mind that of all the shoes that were in the exhibit, only maybe seven sneakers were present, of which only one original adidas sneaker and they chose Jeremy to represent the brand. So it is a great honour! Just so you understand my point, check out some more models present in the exhibition after the jump! Read More…
I just did the spatial concept and installation of No74 in Berlin for the launch of the new collaboration between HAW-LIN, IGNANT and NO74. Hope you like it! It was a lot of fun! The HAW-LIN boys were a thrill to work with! Really sweet guys!
The first idea was to present the white t-shirts and bandanas in the front corner of the store but as I love multiplying visuals to add texture and importance to the product, I decided to expand the direction and ended up occupying almost four times the space initially planned. I believe in the multiplication factor! It benefits the product immensly wether it be a car, a chewing gum, the next Pulitzer prize book, an art piece or a t-shirt and bandana! XXX

I have contributed to an upcoming exhibition by borrowing sneakers and photos from my private performance collection. This time its a pair of pink Jeremy Scott Poodles, model number Q23499, from the adidas ObyO ss13 collection. The exhibition is entitled: “STARKER AUFTRITT!” (experimentelles Schuh-design) and will take place from 28.03. – 29.09.2013 in the GRASSI Museum für angewandte Kunst (Leipzig, Germany) in collaboration with the Virtual Shoe Museum from Holland. We are hoping there wil be a catalogue too. As a teaser, here the link to my photo and poodle shoe on the Virtual shoe Museum. Hope to see many of you at the opening in March!
