Plastic Textiles/Textile Plastics

Conceptual Textile Design

Generative manufacturing processes are able to allow completely new approaches in the design of products and materials.
In this project hybrid objects and surfaces, produced with 3D printing, are displaying new textile attributes. Through a mixture of solid parts and flexible fibres, new materials got developed involving flexibility and softness, but at the same time stability. The textile objects developed from a series of experiments attempt to extend the classical application field of textiles.

105 ltr Forms

Furniture & Interior Design

"105 ltr forms„ are experiments trying to transfer fireproof textiles to new areas of use. The results are various glass and aluminum objects. The work does not only show the development of new production technologies, it also points out another important aspect of successful innovation processes: allowing a lack of definition.
There are constant changes in the production of objects made with fabric. Each object is unique. Although the shapes are sewn accurately, they may vary due to temperature, geometry and size. The deformation can only be influenced to a certain degree.

In / Out

Industrial Design

In / Out is a ritual space for mental calibration, consisting of three interconnected objects, where specific plant species are domesticated. The objects are an interface between humans and plants, they provide a brief moment of symbiosis. The plants require humidity and CO2, which the user is continuously producing by his breath. The botanical fitness trail concentrates on breathing and body posture. Mindfulness is trained and relaxation is promoted while the plants additionally clean the air.

Connecting Wood

Industrial Design

Wood is one of the oldest materials man has availed himself humans of. Since then, a number of methods for using it have been developed, up to the point of liquid wood, a bioplastic material which can be processed through injection moulding. At the heart of the work is the combination of natural wood and this bioplastic, which makes it possible to provide wooden profiles with connecting elements.

Interstellar downslide

Plastic Arts / Ceramics

My work deals with intersections between design and art. Questions I ask myself are: is it important that good design is functional? Is art allowed to fulfill a purpose? The result is pieces that don’t always meet the observer’s expectations. Visual anticipations should be broken down, thereby enabling a renewed view of things.

Gravity – about the attraction between masses

Industrial Design

Our gravity ensemble contains of three kinetic installations a combination of a calendar and a clock, a lamp and an abstract time-piece.The interaction of bodies caused by gravity, the movement of planets in space and the time units which evolved from that movement were inspirational for the three objects. With their function and design the objects are inducing the user and contemplator to reflect, and potentially understand,about the correlations in our planetary system.
