The belt series was inspired by the language of traditional leather craft. In combination with wood, leather serves as a highly functional and aesthetic material.
The hanging rack only needs two screws to be installed. When not in use it can be folded up against the wall. The ladder serves as a shelf or shoe rack. The set-up consists of a typical ladder structure with additional horizontal bars that are held by leather belts.

Wool Light is a ceiling sculpture which exudes soft light from folds of pure wool, thus promoting a warm atmosphere around it. Revealing a unique structure of shadows within its fluffy tufts it is an invitation to sit back and gaze into the landscape of ever-changing patterns.
Wool Light was showcased in the Wool Modern Exhibition organised by Woolmark and The Campaign for Wool and supported by the Prince of Wales. The show has been designed to promote and highlight the advantages of wool over man-made synthetics, across a wide range of products and applications. The exhibition was shown in London, Berlin, Sydney, Shanghai and Seoul.
The Rocking Cube represents more than an ordinary rocking chair. The seat area originates from the formal gesture of pushing the material through the body of the object. It is like a sculpture. The wooden veneer at the inner side of the chair creates warmth and cosiness. Foam, which is soft at the appropriate places, is used to make it comfortable.

Mobility gains more and more a high importance in the field of hair-dressing. Hairstylists not only work in their hairdresser's shops but also at their clients' and at workshops, where they always need their equipment. The mobile trolley is not only a representative furniture in the shop. Moreover it can be transformed simply by hand into a space-saving and easy to carry tool case.

A poster with an alterable structure to display messages - a visually professional and attention grabbing alternative to messy blackboard writings. “Pixel It” consists of two layers of paper. Cuts on the white outer layer allow the user to fold parts out and therefore create a Pixel-Structure by showing the coloured layer underneath.

Inspired by signet rings these marker rings are designed to let designers, architects and artists express their passion for sketching. Crimson Red, New Leaf Green or Powder Blue… You do not want to stick to a single colour? The colour cap can easily be removed and exchanged by another one of your private marker collection.
In domestic environments buckets are used in endless ways - whether it is for cleaning purposes, washing your feet, cooling beer or carrying something. With the “Take-Away Sink” there is no need for an extra bucket that has to be stored and that is often too big for filling it conveniently in an ordinary kitchen sink. Furthermore the possibility of removing the washbasin encourages the saving of water by the re-use of it.
