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.

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

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 ‘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

manufacturer: Nils Holger Moormann GmbH -www.moormann.de

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 – www.betoniu.de
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.
