Toys on heel

Naäm Ben

The collection Come and play with me results from the artist’s passion for toys.

Since 2002, in previous exhibitions, Naäm Ben brings a special care in the preparation of scenographies showcasing his models. The designer uses brightly colored toys unearthed in flea markets or bargain hunt; a vocation and a pastime for him.

The idea of combining the toys directly to the design of shoes was born in 2008, from a research work focused on design and toy for the collection of pictures called Toys-recup. The curve and contour of the models are transformed by a graphic and colorful addition. This astonishing development transforms a foot wear into an exclusive and unique artifact.
