Culinary Hacking

Industrial Design

Fermentation? How can you make beer, sauerkraut or tempeh with the aid of microorganisms by yourself? With convenience products immediately available, fermentation as a cultural technique is in danger of disappearing. The "culture case" made by bacterial cellulose of Kombucha-SCOBY is a starter kit for fermentation and can be seen as an antidote to culinary forgetting.

Plural – Edition of Lamps

Product Design & Applied Art (Porcelain, Ceramics, Glass)

The Plural series is inspired by classical chandeliers. The distinctive design objects consist of textile elements that rotate around an axis that floats in the air. Lit, they diffuse a gentle ambient light, creating islands of comfort and contributing to a cosy atmosphere. They can hang both vertically and horizontally from the hook at the endpoints.

Bambus und Porzellan

Product Design & Applied Art (Porcelain, Ceramics, Glass)

Bamboo weave on porcelain creates a fascinating contrast between hard and soft, fragile and renewable. Two materials from the Far East are being newly interpreted and combined to demonstrate and emphasise their unique features.
Three series, consisting of dishes and vases, portray this fascinating encounter between bamboo and china.
Every handcrafted object has its special charm, and natural materials like bamboo intensify this appeal. I hope the aesthetic I chose will highlight the value of craftwork.

no title (8 brooches)

Plastic Arts / Jewellery

In my work I create spaces. Their forms are abstract and geometric. The external form is clear, divided into flat surfaces. The form can change radically with the perspective of the viewer, but it is ascertainable. The inside of the brooches is protected by a semi-transparent surface. Only some viewing angles show the colourful inside, otherwise the surface is reflecting or white. It seems that the outer limits of the pieces are rescinded in the inner space. The pieces are characterised by the interaction between the known and the unknown. The natural, sensitive and visual appearance of the materials lime wood and ebony respectively contrast with the colourful, almost immaterial interior.

“mina” / a play with nonexistence

Plastic Arts / Jewellery

“mina” deals with representations of nonexistence and objectivity.
A mirror reflects and deflects; the eye focuses on levels which are far behind the surface of the actual object. You look through it the way you look through a hole. A circle is a symbol of neutrality and balance.
The interplay of materials like mirrors and glass with the necessary functional parts gives the brooches and pendants their faces.
From the attempt to create jewellery of maximum objectivity, individualistic pieces grow that have a strong presence and distinctiveness.

Ohne Titel

Plastic Arts / Jewellery

Paul tries to bring his far-fetched ideas in new contexts. The goal is to position his work apart from serious classical jewelry art and fashion design. Therefore he plays with shibboleths. The result are different opinions. 

Paul won with Johanna Winklhofer (Textile Design) at the Fashionweek Berlin the Lavera Green Fashion Award 2016 and Paul‘s jewelry, which he makes under Prof. Daniel Kruger and Melanie Isverding at the Jewelry Arts Department at Burg Giebichenstein, went as youngest aspirant to the Eligius Jewelry Price in Salzburg and were on exhibition at the MAK Vienna.

Plastic Textiles/Textile Plastics

Conceptual Textile Design

Due to generative manufacturing processes, products and materials can today be designed in a completely new way without former limitations. This project deals with the gap between surface and three-dimensionality.
In a first series of experiments 3D-printed objects were created that offer characteristics of textiles but that can be used in a different functional context.

ANONYMES AMUSEMENT – old stuff, new faces

Textile Design

This textile collection consists of recycled fabrics and industrial waste.
Recycling is an anonymous affair in which all kinds of people are involved.
I interpreted this anonymity in the form of masks, woven into the jacquard fabrics and as real handmade wearable masks.
For the shaft-woven fabrics I combined different recycled textile materials and weaving techniques and thereby created different surfaces on the front and reverse sides of the fabrics.

Organic Materials, Economy and the Hope to Turn Straw into Gold

Conceptual Textile Design

he aim of the project was to explore the potential of of the agricultural waste product straw for a future material development. The project arose in cooperation with “sciencampus Halle”, an institution focusing on knowledge-based bio-economy. Using manual papermaking as an example, the research process was put to practice. Chemical extraction, bleaching, dyeing with natural dye stuff and final surface finishing produces an asthetic transformation of the waste material straw.

Boomerang – What comes around goes around

Conceptual Fashion Design

This masters graduate fashion collection addresses the negative effects today’s textile industry, with its appalling production and working conditions, has on people and the environment. The conceptual approach has to start with the choice of materials. Given today’s throw-away society, working with discarded rather than new resources is integral to the idea of this collection.
This is a collection that subtly aims to open a dialogue with the observer about the effects of the “Fast Fashion Industry”.

Buchkunst/Book Art

Confusion and strange phenomena in the sky have a strong impact on people. For millennia these phenomena have been seen, retold and recorded. The interpretation of the miracle varies with the storytelling of the interpreter. You see and hear what you want to see and hear. But whether a strange light is interpreted as divine or extra-terrestrial also depends on the era. Celestial phenomena are slight instruments of conscious deception and manipulation that are subtly revealed in the book “Himmelsspektakel”.

Light Pollution

Buchkunst/Book Art

“Lichtverschmutzung” (light pollution) is the result of a photographic analysis. Throughout the emerging process, moths were used as an exemplary animal to show the effects of light pollution.
The book contains three series. The first shows shots of the night sky, roughly based on the Bortle scale. The second shows the flight of moths in front of a bright lamp, stylised by time exposure. The final series is dedicated to the beauty and the delicate details of the small insects themselves.
Intervals of cyanotypes interrupt the flow of the photo series. These print a loose image of dead collected

Sarcasm is the kind of humour for laughing about things I like most. Humour is important because you win most people’s attention with it. I barely know anyone who doesn’t want to laugh. In addition satire has great power. With just a few lines you can influence things. That’s what fascinates me. I also use contemporary themes now and then in my pictures and comic strips.

In an urban world we appear to live self-sufficient lives. Detached from our environment, we surround ourselves with an artificial casing in which we live our daily routines in overabundance. With extensive technical assistance we lose touch with our nativeness.
The Astronauts function as representatives and show the fragile habitats in which we differentiate ourselves from our surroundings.
They may entertain the viewer with their formal appearance and thus remove barriers that make it difficult to discern the real-life issue.

Temaki Sneaker

Industrial Design

“Temaki Sneakers” are customised shoes that are tailored in a very short time to the foot of the customer. In a performative act of production, the shoe is adapted to the foot. Shoe design, place of manufacture, materials and tools determine the choreography of the shoemaking. The client is part of the performance and a witness to the path that the shoe takes before its first steps.

Design of playing and Learning / Illustration

The basic needs of newly arrived refugees are mainly being covered by initial reception centres. Psychological support for traumatised children is rarely sufficiently available. The consequence of turning these young people adrift is an increased risk of their developing mental disorders or deficits. Therefore the “KITABI Book” aims to provide non-verbal support to children in terms of how to deal with traumatic memories, aversive emotions and their insecure futures. Inclusion is only possible if not only the body but also the mind stays intact.
