René van den Berg is a designer and professor from the Netherlands, who finds his creativity in technique and in a non-conservative and even adventurous way of looking at footwear.
He sees the projects he has in hand with humour, inverting and deconstructing the pre-defined structures and established places of materials and components, creating objects that question traditional construction, fixing and decoration systems.
The exhibition "Beauty under the Skin. Footwear by René van den Berg", brings together fifty-one shoes and three sculptures and inaugurates the artist's presence in Portugal.
This is the first solo exhibition by the designer dubbed "The best kept secret in the footwear industry".

Patent at the Shoe Museum from 21 of may 2022 to 30 of april 2023.
