"THE BORDERS ARE THIN BETWEEN PRACTICES.
AS A PLASTICIAN, I CONSIDER MATERIAL FOR WHAT
IT IS. FLEXIBLE, ROUGH, VOLATILE ...
I GRAB, I COMPRESS, I TORDS, I BURN, I LOOK.
EXPERIMENTATION. IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW
BY TOUCH, IN ACTION, THE FORMS COME TO LIFE.
MINIMIZE THE ACTION TO MAKE IT PURE. GET TO
THE POINT. FIND THE LINE. THE HODEI SNEAKER IS
THE BLANK CANVAS ON WHICH I SPEAK OUT.
A SUPPORT OF FREE CREATION AND IN ADEQUATION
WITH MY LATEST WORKS OF SCULPTURES
BETWEENUPCYCLING AND CONTEMPORARY ART. “
HODEI makes shoes on pre-order. No shop. No stock.
Once worn out, HODEI shoes are returned (for free) to us in order to make new shoes. The use of only EVA foam allows to adapt the manufacturing process of the shoe to a circular economy model. HODEI manages its EVA stock, whether it’s at the factory, or leased to a customer for the time she/he uses her/his pair through the
Eco-Deposit program. No disposal, only up-cycling. We start today in hope of
having a refined process with minimal waste tomorrow.
