From day one, Jan Jansen shook up the world with his designs that combined comfort and craftsmanship with innovative designs. Averse to fashion and colour trends, Jan Jansen played with explosive colours, organic, playful forms and experimental materials. This resulted in the Rattan, - also known as the bamboo shoe, - which boasted as a wedge heel made of rattan.
Many Dutch designers were inspired by Jan Jansen’s free and adventurous spirit, leading to ground-breaking designs that have since become world famous under the name Dutch Design. A design aesthetic that can be characterised as: minimalistic, experimental, innovative, unconventional and with a sense of humour.
