« A shoe is an art-object. Beyond functionalism there’s an abstract presence of the shoe. I am looking for the possible widest range of abstraction in shoe design. » / Attalai Zita /

« After my graduation at the Design Academy of Budapest my activity has got a deep addiction to shoe sculptures although I define myself as an industrial designer. My individual artistic line is creating shoe sculptures myself in my atelier which are design samples and stand as objects of art – especially for trendforecast concepts.

Beside my everyday practice I have projects that I am working on, see more in Projects 

“The lines between the work of the cobbler, fashion designer and artist are often blurred. These creators are in constant dialog with one other and also inspire each other. Thus, some shoes are specially designed, but still wearable fashion pieces, while other shoes are pure objects of art. » I find these quote represents my thoughts about shoe design quite well. This was written in the press release and on the official site of the german Schuhtick exhibition 2008
« Ferdinand Scholz: Life is good, art is beautiful. Shoe, only you can exist in both. »
