modular clay wall system


a material concept from yesterday – progressively applied

The starting point of the modular clay-wall is based on the idea of making clay-walls possible in houses that were not built of clay. A modular clay panel wall system offers the possibility of quick assembly and disassembly, there is no drying time because the panels are prefabricated. This avoids long waiting times and the risk of mold formation in poor drying conditions. An existing wall does not have to be covered over the entire surface and not from the floor upwards, so the clay panels can be better adapted to an existing room situation. It is also possible to use the panels as room dividers, partitions that do not have to reach the ceiling can be covered with clay panels. The modules allow the simple conversion of building services installations (switches, sockets). Because the clay panels are at a distance from the wall, they also have a positive effect on the acoustics or the soundproofing of a room, which is particularly interesting for open-plan offices.

The modular clay-wall regulates the indoor climate in a completely ecological way. The modules are made from a fully sustainable natural resource that sets without the input of wastable energy or resource-consuming chemical catalysts. Everything that is achieved today in terms of room climate regulation with a lot of chemicals and energy ¬– contains this material and this type of application. The clay-wall modular system avoids existing problems with the material clay, so long setting processes of the material are usually in contradiction to today‘s impatience of fast building and money. Naturally available almost everywhere, the material also contradicts the philosophy of brand loyalty. Clay processing technologies don‘t need to be globalized first, they are. The clay-wall-system opens up many new and innovative application options and significantly expands the radius of use of clay in interiors.

Living like ED

-Living Like Dieckmann- Installation for the large Erich Dieckmann (ED) retrospective in the Art Foundation of the State of Saxony-Anhalt and in the Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin.

Together with the artist Margit Jäschke, we have developed a completely usable room concept on behalf of the art foundation of the state of Saxony-Anhalt under the title -Living like Dieckmann-. The room approaches the forgotten work of Erich Dieckmann. Erich Dieckmann had studied at the Bauhaus, he headed the Bauhaus carpentry workshop in Weimar and taught furniture construction at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle (Saale). Historical furniture designs by Erich Dieckmann were faithfully reproduced for the exhibition. The room is intended to make the effect of furniture tangible for visitors, they can read and lie there and simply feel what it means to sit in a piece of design history. We approached the questions very openly, took up the person Erich Dieckmann and his complex biography, confronted him with current issues of our time and included ironic and question-raising quotes. With the “ED” logo, in the style of a well-known fashion brand, Erich Dieckmann himself is glorified as a brand. The forgotten Dieckmann finally becomes the editor of his work and the hype can begin.

Neo Luna Park

Together with Yi-Cong Lu we were invited for a visiting professorship at the Burg Giebichenstein – University of Art and Design for developing and lecturing a concept of a new so called Neo-Luna-Park together with a group of design students. The project Neo-Luna-Park was kindly supported by the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and was shown at the Bauhaus Festival 2016.

We are familiar with funfairs, and the roller coasters, carnival games and rides that come with them, as places of pleasure. Funfairs are a traditional symbol of  leisure and enjoyment, nostalgic places that reminds us of our own childhoods.

But what most people don´t know ist that funfairs were once thought of as places of learning. In the late nineteenth century, people could go to funfairs to experience and learn about the drastic transformations that were occurring in everyday life. Accordingly, funfairs, with their garish neon signs and high-speed ride, can also be seen as sites for learning about life in the modern metropolis.

The Burg Giebichenstein – University of Art and Design, made us the tempting offer to work on a project on the topic of „pleasure“ in collaboration with the Bauhaus Dessau.

Collectively, we cast about for suitable ways to locate and approach this wide-ranging theme, and came up with the idea of building a funfair with the students. Just like the original fairs, our funfair „Neo Luna Park“ is also conceived of as an experimental laboratory and a canvas to project ideas onto. We invite the students to develop controversial artistic works in the park in the form of games, installations and devices that visitors could interact with.

We also encouraged them to develop „amusements“ that reflect critically on the challenges of the present day. During the project, the students gave equal attention to the world of work (which nowadays offers variety, fun and self-fulfilment alongside all the hard slog) and to ist social counterpart, leisure time, which we try to use in a productive, gainfull way. The students work explored themes such as the ways that social media changes our relationships and our need and yearning for self-improvement, genuine physical experiences and a slower pace in everyday life. Some of the students projects expressed issues that were highly personal in nature, which we regard as the result of a long, unflinchingly honest engagment with these important topics. The sincerity, joie de vivre and curiosity that they brought into the group made it an amazing experience to supervise this project, for which we are very grateful to the students.

We would particularly like to thank the projekt partners Matthias Zänsler and Dieter Hofmann from the Burg Giebichenstein – University of Art and Design and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation , for the organisational support and for allowing us to exhibit the entire project at the 2016 Bauhaus Festival.

Migration – (E)migration, flight and displacement

Exhibition for the German Traffic Museum Dresden



Migration – (E)migration, flight and displacement

People have always migrated. The earliest archaeological evidence of migration found in present-day Saxony is thousands of years old. People continue to leave their homes today because of famine, suppression, war, natural disasters or the hope of a better life somewhere else. It often was – and still is – simply a matter of saving their own lives. Various modes of transportation frequently play an important role in migration flows. A number of innovations in the transport sector, such as the railways and steamships, provided significant momentum in this respect. This exhibition presents a selection of individuals and their stories from past centuries to the present day. The people and their biographies differ as much as their reasons for migrating. To understand why they emigrated, fled or were displaced, it is important for us to envisage what they experienced, their life stories and destinies. Data and numbers alone do not provide enough insight. The exhibition therefore provides a platform for the migrants themselves to tell their own tale.

domestic landscape

living earthen

Domestic Landscape is an interior concept which integrates raw earth materials within a living space and enables the characteristics of this material to be useful there. The most important element of the concept is the Climate-Wall-Storage-System, a constructible modular climate wall. This easily assembled piece positively influences the indoor climate, and can simultaneously be used as storage furniture. In addition to a plantable Soil Table, other objects made of earthen materials compliment this spatial concept.

Kunststiftung Sachsen-Anhalt & Kloster Bergesche Stiftung


climate wall and storage system

living earthen

The mobile Climate-Wall-Storage-System unites versatile functions. The Climate Wall requires no tools for assembly, improves the interior climate, without the need of additional energy, and can provide a natural separation within large rooms. The earthen panels absorb noise and pollutants, bind humidity and temperature, and have an overall anti-allergenic effect in the surrounding. Numerous necessities for the regulation of indoor temperature, which are typically attained using energy and chemicals, are intrinsic functions of these panels. The panels consist of fully sustainable raw earthen materials like soil, loam and clay minerals. Another important component is recycled used-paper.

In addition to the function of a Climate Wall it also serves as storage space. The storage can be concealed entirely by the panels or can be left partially opening allowing easy alternatives for various settings.The possibility to shelve potted plants within these interspaces can, in addition, increase the indoor climate capacity. The modular system requires no further installations, demands no structural changes of the surrounding space and stands statically secure without any additional anchorage necessary. It allows itself to be easily adapted to the most varying spatial contexts.

The Climate-Wall-Storage-System brings familiar though uncommon natural materials back into the interior space. It proves that new and progressive uses, especially, are possible with these raw materials that may initially appear dull. The raw materials are not concealed, which is an essential characteristic of its design, and enrich the indoor climate not only with the positive climatic qualities, but also by creating atmospheric accents in the inner space. The system, in its entirety, functions as a small microcosm in a room, and leads to a responsible and intentional interaction with the respective user. The user is a vital element of the system. Due to the direct communication of the environmental features and functionality with the user, a feeling of living with nature is strengthened within the indoor living space

wardrobe bench

the wardrobe bench is a corridor furniture which is organizing the whole dressing equipment and further it´s a bench for putting on one´s shoes in a relaxing way. The wardrobe bench use varies from a rack for over-thrown clothes to a coat rack, where hangers are hung on the hooks of the rod.

materials: plywood, steel, linoleum

developed together with Paul Evermann


recycling chair-sofa system

the couch and armchair are made out of recycled foam, the natural and colorful shape comes from the different hackled foam source material. The system consists of two basic elements / panels which can be added easily together by a simple cable control framework. By adding the panels you can easily achieve a wide diversity of couch an sofa versions.


Comfy Cargo Chair – the original

The ‘Comfy Cargo Chair’ originated from the idea to create a piece of furniture which does not predetermine the surface for the user. The object is not finished, but rather requires creative collaboration by the owner.

The chair’s form is reminiscent of a three dimensional grid. It consist simply of hollow spaces whose open structure requires filling with personal things such as pillows, blankets, newspapers, books, cuddly pets etc. By packing the chair full of personal belongings, the user changes the ‘design’, and thus becomes the creator of an individual piece of furniture. Conceptually the open framework of the chair is meant to assist a creative acquisition, a ‘nesting’ process.


“Stellvertreter” coat racks for Moormann

The Stellvertreter stands its ground. While the 1. Stellvertreter puts its best foot forward with a big man’s footprint, the 2. Stellvertreter has an additional children’s footprint and a shoe brush. Either way, these two object wardrobes always give you a warm welcome.

concrete bowls for BETONIU

manufacturer: BETONIU –
variable sizes

They reflect the light just like polished natural stone, they feel comfortable and smooth cradled in your hands. The lips of the bowls – only a few millimetres thick – show that concrete is a material that can be used for the finest work, at the same time denonstrating where its limits lie; here, it has been taken to its limit.

Setting a minimalist accent, this set of four hand-made bowls presents an apparently everyday material in a new context. The bowls have a mobile quality; playing with the usual cliché of the hard rigidity and weight of concrete; they can rock back and forth, while drawing their stability from the increasing wall thickness towards the base.


domestic concrete collection

a world made out of concrete.

Its an experiment to see how we can work with the typical qualities of concrete in our domestic life and furthermore it’s was a challenge to find new properties for concrete inside the interior-world. Here the dimension of concrete, the behaviour and the functional qualities and requirements are totally different from an architectonical way of working and thinking with this material.

Concrete can be small, light, colourful, warm and moveable.
