Sruli Recht, born in Jerusalem, Israel in 1979 and being a citizen of Australia where he lived and worked for many years, he is now based in Reykjavik of Iceland. He studied Fashion Design at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia where he subsequently commenced and developed his career primarily as a experimental fashion designer, whereas he then moved on to other forms of design through which he could channel his natural artistic spirit.
For Recht design is not just about making a beautiful object – his conceptions are based upon resonance of process – ‘Its about making things that people didn’t know they needed, but now cant live without’ – perhaps because they are functional, perhaps because they look nice, but mostly because they provide them with a new way of experiencing things in life. It is about making the aesthetic and functional qualities integral parts of our lives.
Sruli Recht to me has become of one of my favourite designer I admire the form, construction, the thought that goes in producing his range my fingers are crossed hopefully I won’t miss out on purchasing a pair of Recht shoes.
