‘Iota’ is a series of stools created to showcase the hidden beauty that lies at the level of the molecule and beyond. An object we perceive as solid can consist of a multitude of elements no thicker than a human hair. By enlarging the scale of these nano-structures, that humans cannot see with the naked eye, ‘Iota’ highlights the intricate and complex compositions at the foundations of the world around us.
Liquid Light is a series of lamps that deal with the fragility of organic matter. Coloured wax is hand poured straight onto the light fixture without using any other means of connection. The user can decide the lifespan of its own lamp. The intensity and the duration of the light bulb regulate the amount of time this lamp will shine.
How do materials react together? What happens when you combine two materials which do not normally exist in harmony?When model foam is used to mould plastic a reaction occurs where the polyurethane plastic dissolves away at the foam beneath it, creating an abstract and organic form, that has previously not been. The contrasting tactilities that result from this process give these pieces of furniture their distinguishing features. At first a small series of model furniture was created to study form possibilities, leading the end result of a full size chair and table.
Bending steel inspired this shelf which can hold books, papers, catalogues or any type of printed media of any format.
Untreated metal stains oak, usually as an unwanted side effect of unprotected metal and wood jointly exposed to the element water.
Utilizing results from experimenting and cultivating this phenomenon, I have created a series of objects highlighting and showcasing the aesthetic beauty when metal and water collide.
The public private pavilion is a piece of furniture for the exterior and interior.
Two levels, two angles, two different experiences.
Close to the ground a more sheltered, private feeling overcomes the user.
The elevated, high-rise deck offers not only a different perspective onto the surrounding, but creates the perception of exposure and publicness.
The worn-out Persian rug is very present in todays society. Grandmothers dust-keepers are replenished for a new period of life by hand tufting right through the outdated rug.
The unfamiliar nature of the soft, thick, cushioned tuft soothes the feet while the worn out Persian acts as a reminder of its own past.
