Starting point of the furniture project “Latte Deluxe“ was an inexpensive and raw material. The roof batten, on the first sight a mass-product lacking aesthetics and potential for design, shows, on second sight, qualities that require to be developed. For transportation, the battens are bundled up with metal tapes. Precisely this method was inspiration to create BURN IT CHAIR, which also makes use of the good flammability of the product. Through fire, the final sitting comfort is burnt into the wood and then gradually refined.

Rotable is an interactive table that invites the user to take a break from using his smartphone. The idea is based on the principle that the smartphone will disappear inside the table due to a rotating movement. Thus, the user is playfully guided through an undisturbed meal. In a next step, food and cutlery appear. Due to an integrated wireless charging technology, the user can, after having completed his meal, take his readily charged smartphone.
