A project made in cooperation with Braun®, an international producer for shavers and other electronic devices.
The starting point of this project, was the observation of how similar men and ladies‘ shavers, regarding their technical components, are. Even though the consumers preferences have changed which is not necessarily gender specific, the market still offers mainly gendered products.
The aim of this project was to refocus on what a shaver actually is: a tool for hair removal.
WHEN WE WERE EXHALING IMAGES
each pipe ø900mm
„When we were Exhaling Images“ takes a different approach to space and examines the way of horizontal living. It was inspired by a refugee‘s story during the 1990s.
The Nest pipe focuses on the social/scientic
transformation of an existing topology into a living space. In contrast to just staying in a room, living in one is determined by the personal identi cation with it. Establishing a space with furniture is what people traditionally do. When you observe the behavior of other mammals in terms of how they embrace a space, it is clear that building a nest became a symbol for exactly this transformation. The nest should be seen as a provocative picture to discuss what we actually need to identify ourselves with a room.

The series of mirror glasses where born out of the logic to guide peoples‘ perspective.
Referring to the documenta14 project ‚when we were exhaling images‘ in collaboration with Hiwa K. the idea of changing perspective was translated into 4 different glasses. The distinct illusions were created by positioning the mirroring surfaces in various angles.

A collapsible wooden table.
By transforming the inspiration of the traditional craft of cooperage into modern technology a screwless connection was developed. The design is a reduction, a slightly disappearing, but deciding detail shifts the focus to it's main purpose: a demountable, stable table. Only a framing strap is the connecting element which leaves a historical reference.
