A Model of Collaboration
Camper and Kvadrat have a great deal in common: the ambition to do things differently; the determination to break through aesthetic and technological barriers; respect for good design, which both brands demonstrate by working with some of the best creative minds in the world; and the ability to develop products that become universal symbols of creativity and innovation. A legendary shoe meets an iconic fabric: Camper Pelotas and Hallingdal 65 by Kvadrat.
