There’s nothing I like better than a day spent wrestling flat pack furniture – discarding the instructions only to go hunting for them a few hours later! That being said, I’m not too keen on the finished look of the flatpack shoe (even if I would enjoy putting them together).

“We were asked by artist Alicia Framis to create a conceptual shoe for space travel for the Moon Life project,” says the label’s creative director, Rem D Koolhaas. “We thought the further you send or ship something, the more important the weight and size – so the idea of ‘small and light’ led us to the flat-pack idea.”
