visit queen máxima to the emya nominated shoe quarter


This week, Queen Máxima visited the Dutch Shoe Quarter in Waalwijk. The reason for her visit was to see their new temporary exhibition and the shoe lab. They explained to the Queen how the Shoe Quarter connects craftsmanship, design, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Of course, a tour of the permanent exhibitions, for which we were responsible for the design, was also included. What an honour!

In the meantime, the Shoe Quarter has been nominated for the 2024 European Museum of the Year Awards (EMYA). We are proud that our work has been noticed by the professional jury of this prestigious annual museum prize.
