The silhouette of the architect-designed shoes features a collapsible heel, allowing the footwear silhouette to adapt from formal settings into more casual ones. Given the nature of the collaboration, it should come as no surprise that the Koio x Norm Architects minimalist Oxford silhouette is accompanied by a furniture release. The design practice was inspired to develop “a bench as a complementary piece for the shoes.” The aesthetic of this furniture piece also embraces the design ethos of minimalist comfort and timeless style that the shoes exude. The bench features solid oak and is made to order.
