Satat-Kombor Shelly

Shelly Satat-Kombor was born in Jerusalem. She graduated from the Jewelry and Fashion Design Department of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem.
In 2001, she launched together with her partner Elon, the shoe brand CoupleOf. Over the years, the two designed conceptual shoes that are not meant for walking alongside commercial shoe lines sold in the brand’s stores in Israel and select boutiques around the world. In 2001, the two opened the duo exhibition CoupleOf Shoes at Periscope gallery. Since then, they have participated in local and international conceptual exhibitions alongside commercial exhibitions.
In 2010 the two received the Ministry of Culture and Sports Designer Award. From the panel’s statement: “Shelly and Elon Satat-Kombor are a groundbreaking life’s work in the field of design and shoemaking in Israel and abroad. For years, and against all the odds, the two have established a shoe design industry, from the drawing board, through designing and self-manufacturing, to prestigious local and international recognition. Their work demonstrates a daring way of thinking, which leads to a renewed and fresh definition of the concept of shoe, its design via innovative and flexible ‘structures’ that bring to mind original architectural buildings. The designers manage to marry concrete functional design with a concept that eschews changing trends. Their design work is characterized by creativity and ingenuity, while looking at alternative materials and re-examining the fine line between design, art, and function. All these enrich the field of couture shoemaking and give it a different, unique, and fascinating character.”
Shelly believes in the personal ability of each and every individual.
Since October 2017, she has been serving as head of the Jewelry and Fashion Design Department of Bezalel.
