At the intersection of innovative design and masterful artisanship, you can find the label TRIPTYCH. TRIPTYCH is about individuality — not conformity — sculpted to push the boundaries of normality and trends. A laboratory dedicated to the research, design and fabrication of artisan objects made by and for the body, the category-defying brand does not create products for everyone or every season; rather, it creates products that challenge how the body wears and how this quality transforms based on the decisions of the people that wear them.
Tania Ursomarzo, the designer and scientist behind TRIPTYCH as well as Parson’s New School of Design architect professor, has created a new sub-set of shoe design, which is the new reign for modern cuts and sculptures. For Spring/Summer 2016, the complex designs are built on gray and black scales with hints of crackled and reptile inspired prints throughout the new assortment. The vast complexity of the designs offers a gateway into the new idea of design for the shoe industry. Though avant-garde to some, the collection is a mirror image of sophisticated and sleek footwear that are dominating all on their own. Ursomarzo once again creates the image that “TRIPTYCH is for individuals with a respect for high design and an interest in collecting and experiencing design objects for life, not for fashion.”
