    STOOL 2017
    H 445 / D 360 / W 353
    ASH, STAINED ASH

    Oyster is a stool and occasional
    side table made of solid ash.
    The tripod design reveals a
    graphic quality and is rich in
    wood working details. The
    excentrically designed stool
    gets a clear direction through
    its off-cut in its circular seat
    and the remarkable T-shaped
    leg construction making it a
    versatile stool for your
    everyday life.

    CHAIR SYSTEM 2016
    H 790 / W 516 / D 530
    PLYWOOD
    ALUMINIUM TUBE LEGS
    CAST ALUMINIUM BASE

    Glyph is a multi-purpose task
    chair family. It has a basic
    and honest expression, while
    developing a very distinctive
    character by the contrasting
    shaped wood and bold alum-
    inium tubing. The wood
    shell’s comfortable seat area
    enables a 180° action radius
    for task environments, made
    possible by its soft edge.
    An unusual three-dimension-
    ality is being reached by
    pushing the boundaries of
    shaped wood technology.

    Compound table lamp
    highlights the usage of latest
    LED technology. The massive
    acrylic block with its mono-
    lithic and static expression
    features a minimum of
    formal intervention. The
    simple cutout of a conical
    volume results in an elegantly
    curved and frosted cavity.

RELIC

  • RELIC

    DOCUMENT TRAY 2016
    H 53 / W 261 / D 335
    POWDERCOATED ALUMINIUM

    RELIC is a pair of document
    trays made from sturdy, light-
    weight aluminium sheet.
    A series of geometric cutouts
    develop a unique narrative by
    referencing machining holes
    formed during industrial sheet
    metal processing. The cutouts
    also create an interesting
    shadowplay when lit, thereby
    giving the product an appealing
    visual depth. The result of a
    collaborative commission to
    create high-end packaging for
    Drop’s inaugural print edition,
    the RELIC trays will be available
    in limited quantities as part of
    the upcoming Drop Vol. 01
    Kickstarter campaign.

    PARTLY GLAZED
    SILICON RING

    We were commissioned by
    Nespresso to design a new

    The Touch Collection has been
    designed with attention to
    detail and a careful consider-
    ation of materials. A choice of
    black pigmented porcelain
    guarantees a deep brilliant
    colour finish – glossy black is
    married with a matt ‘bisque’
    base and a central silicon ring
    provides an easy grip and
    irresistibly tactile appeal.
