Birkenstock x 032c: Footwear for the Melting Terrain of the Internet

In our campaign for the new Birkenstock x 032c footwear collaboration, photographer Christian Werner shoots 032c’s Marc Goehring and Nunguja Kisalya as they road test their new clogs.

Some of us grew up wearing them, some of us have been working the same pair for the better part of the last decade, but pretty much everyone at the 032c workshop has something to say about Birkenstock’s shoes. Enter BIRKENSTOCK x 032c: footwear made for life on the melting terrain of the digital age. Incorporating Birkenstock’s orthopedic designs, which respond to the needs of the wearer, 032c has customized the brand’s unisex clog – a polyurethane exercise in extreme versatility, designed to withstand the heat of modern industrial and subcultural conditions, day and night, at work and at play.

For the Birkenstock x 032c campaign, 032c Fashion Director Marc Goerhing yolked fellow teammate Nunguja Kislaya into dressing up for a shoot with photographer Christian Werner at our offices in Berlin-Kreuzberg, where we’ve fully embraced the collection.

    It has become an enormous cliché that half of mankind now lives in the city, and that this proportion is only increasing. This has, ironically, been a pretext for architects to focus only on the city. We are bombarded in architecture books with statistics confirming the ubiquity of the urban condition, while the symmetrical question is ignored: what did those moving to the city leave behind?More
