ART A SHOE CAN BE is a collaboration between Karin Janssen and myself. “Balancing on the edge of what’s feasible. We develop new materials and explore the tension between form and function. The result? Striking and most exclusive sculptures. That’s what A SHOE CAN BE.” Karin Janssen Karin –graduated from the famous Design Academy in Eindhoven– has owned a design studio for over 12 years, before focussing on shoe design. This creative entrepreneur gets excited by projects in which she can combine her two- and three-dimensional expertise with her love for special materials.
