a stool that interprets the
star of david in 2d & 3d

The stool takes advantage of the natural qualities of the different materials: the iron for stability, the cane for flexibility and the rope for comfort and to combine all parts.

The braid, that reminds of the star of David, is very stable. It also unites the characteristics of the legs and the seat squab.

The form of the seat squab determines how the user has to sit. There are fixed places for the legs. The line of cane in the back is a little bit higher and gives the flexibility. Combined with the adapting rope, sitting on the stool becomes very comfortable.

Polygon Deer

innocent but martial

The Polygon Deer is the ethical correct alternative to deer heads.

During an experiment of transforming round forms into polygons the Polygon Deer developed. The edged forms give the mask an aggressive and martial look. This appearance contrasts the fact that the Polygon Deer is the ethical alternative to the once very popular deer heads. Hung on the wall the mask becomes decoration, without letting an animal suffer

the gentleman
among home offices

Topic of this concept is working at home: a phenomenon that due to our more and more flexible society gains importance. The most significant disadvantage of home offices is, that work and free time cannot be cleary seperated anymore. Mr.Moneypenny helps the user in a gentle way to manage this work life balance. By the use of illumination Mr.Moneypenny supports concentrated working as well as relaxation in the evening.

Closed: Floor Lamp

The outer form is inspired by stage lighting. Nothing reminds the user of a workplace. The indirect, warm light creates a relaxing atmosphere.

Opened: Work Place

The inside of the desk is designed in different colours to make the seperation of the different functions visible. According to the direction and temperature of the illumination the atmosphere changes completely. The now cold and direct light helps to concentrate.

Mr. Moneypenny is especially useful for small flats. Thanks to the space-saving design and multifunctional use this piece of furniture fits into every home.
