Our love for good, honest and simple Scandinavian design at Stig Percy goes beyond footwear. We want to enhance other talents within the Scandinavian design world that share Stig Percy’s values and vision – and therefore Allan Torp was the perfect match for us. Not only is he a pioneer when it comes to Scandinavian design and pushing the boundaries- but he also has got an entrepreneurial mindset that we hope will inspire others.
Allan’s vision when co-designing the sneakers was to create something that felt dressed yet casual in premium whole-grain leather, rooted in the Scandinavian minimalist design culture. An important part of the process was to understand people’s needs and how they live their lives around the world. It became crucial for Allan and to us at Stig Percy when creating a shoe people could live their lives in.
During the development, we brought Allan with us to visit our factory outside of Porto, to document the journey and process from ideas and sketches to a finished product, a journey that you can read about in our Part I blog post and on Bungalow 5.
