Movement

TRIPTYCH IS A MOVEMENT ABOUT MOVEMENT. A MOVEMENT TOWARD QUALITY, EXPERIMENTATION AND ADVANCING THE DISCIPLINE OF ACCESSORY DESIGN AND FABRICATION. A MOVEMENT TOWARD CHALLENGING THE WAY THAT ACCESSORIES CAN BE WORN BY THE BODY AND THE WAY THAT THE BODY – ITS FORM AND ITS MOVEMENT – CAN IN FORM AND TRANS FORM THE DESIGN OF OBJECTS. IT IS THIS REFLEXIVE RELATIONSHIP THAT THE BODY HAS TO THE OBJECTS THAT IT MAKES AND WEARS THAT IS THE SOURCE OF TRIPTYCH'S INSPIRATION AND AT THE ROOT OF ALL ITS PRODUCTS. TRIPTYCH IS A MOVEMENT ABOUT DESIGN IN RESPONSE TO THE LIVING, MOVING, MAKING BODY.


/ TRIPTYCH IS A LABORATORY DEDICATED TO THE RESEARCH, DESIGN, AND CONSTRUCTION OF OBJECTS BY AND FOR THE BODY. /


EACH PAIR OF TRIPTYCH FOOTWEAR IS HANDCRAFTED TO THE HIGHEST ITALIAN MANUFACTURING STANDARDS. THE FACTORY THAT WE WORK WITH IN NORTHERN ITALY IS A FOURTH-GENERATION ARTISANAL FAMILY BUSINESS THAT HAS DECADES OF EXPERIENCE PRODUCING SHOES FOR HIGH-END INTERNATIONAL FASHION HOUSES SUCH AS MISSIONI, HELMUT LANG, AND PRADA. UNLIKE MANY OTHER SHOES STAMPED ”MADE IN ITALY”, TRIPTYCH FOOTWEAR IS NOT JUST SOLED THERE BUT 100% HANDMADE IN ITALY BY CRAFTSPEOPLE WHO HAVE DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO THE QUALITY AND EVOLUTION OF THEIR SKILL.

WORKING WITH SKILLED CRAFTSPEOPLE NOT ONLY ADDS AN ARTISANAL QUALITY TO AN OTHERWISE CONVENTIONAL PRODUCT BUT THE INNOVATIVE DESIGN OF TRIPTYCH SHOES, ITS EXTENSION OF AND PLAY ON THE TRIED STRUCTURES OF FOOTWEAR, BOTH CHALLENGES THE TRADITIONAL CRAFT OF SHOEMAKING AND DEPENDS ON ITS EXPERTISE FOR SUCCESSFUL REALIZATION. IN THIS WAY, TRIPTYCH HELPS MOVE ARTISANAL SHOEMAKING INTO THE FUTURE, GIVING IT RELEVANCE IN CONTEMPORARY SHOE DESIGN.

THOUGH AN ACCESSORIES LABEL, TRIPTYCH IS A BRAND DRIVEN BY DESIGN AND CRAFT, NOT BY FASHION. EVERY PRODUCT SEEKS TO BREAK NEW GROUND, TO CELEBRATE SOLID WORKMANSHIP, AND TO HELP US RETHINK THE ORDINARY AND ELEVATE THE EVERYDAY. AND TRIPTYCH IS A LABOR OF LOVE. THESE ARE PRODUCTS FOR PEOPLE WHO VALUE THINGS MADE WITH CARE AND DEVOTION, WHO APPRECIATE INNOVATION, AND WHO BELIEVE IN THE ARTISTRY OF FORWARD-THINKING DESIGN.
