The broken-hearted love story of Rem D Koolhaas, nephew and namesake of architect Rem Koolhaas of OMA will go down in shoemaking history for giving birth to the company behind some of today’s most forward-thinking footwear designs.
Established in 2003, together with Galahad Clark (a seventh Generation shoemaker), each pair of United Nude shoes is a reinterpretation of an architectural object or seen an exploration of the possibilities offered by movement, colours and materials. Commencing with its inaugural ‘Möbius’ shoe, the brand Is guided in equal parts by pushing the boundaries of footwear design and collaborating on limited edition releases with high profile creatives including Iris van Herpen, Zaha Hadid, Issey Miyake and Linda Farrow.
Named winner of a 2016 Wallpaper* Design Award, United Nude is positioned as a world leader in architectural footwear and accessories. The brand’s shoes are sold in over 50 countries world, with concept stores in Amsterdam, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Taipei and Beijing.
