Sentaku - the essence of purification

Industrial Design

At the turn of the millennium, the themes of function and aesthetics applied in the bathroom experienced a fundamental change.
The bathroom has become more than a place for body hygiene, but a space for rituals and new themes such as relaxation, rest and consciousness. Sentaku is a series of three objects: for washing the hands, the feet and the face. All three objects stand alone. However as a group, they form a family in which its order and prioritization is left to the user. Through their design they imply a specific action and therefore generate an environment for relaxation and consciousness - the essence of purification.

ErdeWachsStift

Industrial Design

Soil is an essential part of our life – it epitomizes home, fertility, the past and the future. Just as people have different views on soil, the substance itself can differ vastly. The project takes the soil from underground into the open and into focus. Soil and wax are the basis for crayons that allow a different take on our environment. I take a specimen of each and archive it together with the soil pigment. This way a personal collection of my work emerges. Besides these archives, the crayons are still intended to be simple commodities, to be used.

The “Sachsen Anhalt” collection consists of the soils of my region and is one humble example of the many possibilities that lie at our very feet.

Porcelain, your colours – an experiment

Product Design and Applied Art Porcelain, Ceramic, Glass

“Porcelain, your colours” examines the meaning colour can have for this material today. What potential of expression lies in the classical colouring methods and how can it be extended?
In an open experimental structure, my search moves between method and sensuality, abstraction and “thingness”. The experiments took place in the oldest porcelain factory at Meissen, where colours are created in the company’s own laboratory. In cooperation with the lab and painters, I was searching for new and lively connections with the material; neon colour as well as light and space are included.

Typotrop

Communication Design

The project “Typotrop” focuses on the limits of our perception and the legibility of type. The underlying idea goes back to the optical illusion of the thaumatrope. The result is “Thauma”, a font split into two layers and printed on the front and back of plates. The letters are only perceptible through the rotation of the panels. I demonstrate an experimental and unconventional way of type design based on three “Typotrops” and a filmic type specimen.

Lumio

Industrial Design

»Lumio« is a series of lamps where light is emitted via reflections. The missing light source in the centre of the translucent discs, leaves the viewer wondering about the source of the light. The illusion reveals a core property of light: the tendency to reflect and to bounce off refractive surfaces. Multiple levels of light emission are achieved by concentrating the light source in a 1.8 m revolving LED at the centre of the discs. There it reflects onto a sandblasted surface to create an ambient light before being sent through a spherical mirror to form a perpendicular spotlight for functional purposes. The physical design of this light series is centred around its pared back appearance and places the principles of light reflection at the center of the viewers attention.

The paste extruders Albert and Alberta

Industrial Design

Humans have created tools to achieve their needs, to materialize their imaginations. Creating diversity. Creating independence. Tools to challenge exceptional circumstances – breaking new ground.

Introducing Albert: Albert is an affordable paste extruder for everyone. Just connect the Albert extruder unit with your existing 3D printer and gain access to printing non-standard materials with your standard printer. Albert is compatible with almost every 3D printer available on the market. The extruder is delivered in components for easy and smart assembly. Addressed to the maker community. Explore materials like food, silicon, ceramics or any other paste material. What material would you try for printing?

Looking for more? Introducing Alberta. Giving you the opportunity to challenge more than one material at once, it lets you create even more advanced things. Two different materials may react chemically, or perhaps bring a whole new functional aesthetic into your creation. What about composition? Create transitions within your printing, while the physicality shifts in between.

Forms and opportunities are immense. People use tools in many different ways, leading to the most fascinating and inspiring outcomes. Your creations are not meant to stay in plastic. Print your unique ideas with Albert and Alberta.

2K

Industrial Design

In the semester project "my personal factory", I experimented with the topic of foam. The aim was to understand how different foam structures are built up and how they can be specifically influenced. The goal was to produce statically loadable objects.

2k are two components that are complemented by their different properties. The soft, open-cell foam forms the matrix for the injected foam. The material introduced has the possibility to expand freely. In the cured state, a load-bearing connection is thus formed.

Record Lathe

Industrial Design

A converted record player engraves sound-grooves onto old CD-blanks. Every mp3 or sound data file can be sent from a computer to the record lathe. The result is a 5-inch record made of polycarbonate that can be listened to on standard record players.
