Drilling

DRILLING is a three-legged stool, which is composed of three identical aluminium parts. The multiple use of the same parts creates an advantage within the production process on the one hand and a formal neatness and simplicity on the other. The three parts of the stool are connected alongside their respective outward facing surfaces. By doubling the material along the legs DRILLING gains its stability and rigidity. The seat which is formed by joining the three parts has a recess at its center, which can be used as a handle for carrying the stool.

Cat's Cradle

Digits or Fibers, a current design process dilemma. All of us are beginners but some of us have to work at it. Beginning designers observe every technique available and learn some. With time (~10,000 hours) we acquire facility (-ies) that elevate/popularize/personalize/economize our game. So, I am fascinated by the current fascination with media that propose that the most basic building block of design is the digit, easily controlled. The digit is not a life-generating unit, merely a rounding down to a least common denominator smaller than fiber. Design is at least shards, splinters and fiber.

Méo

Just like a real game of building blocks ready to assemble, Meo is a construction with a childlike and innocent character that stands out for its rigor and balanced composition. While the richness and depth of the oak brings a certain wisdom to the saturated colored scaffolding elements, an interesting duality is captured between the rigidity of the design piece and its slanted yet controlled position. Meo tends to remind us all the joy and happiness a simple wooden toy punctuated by a few bright colors can provide to a child.

Kagome

Designed by Shinn Asano with background in graphic design, Sen is a 6 piece collection of steel furniture that turns 2D lines into 3D forms. Each piece including “kagome stool” has been created with lines that minimize excess to express both form and functionality in a range of applications, inspired by unique sources such as traditional Japanese craft and patterns. Kagome stool is made from 18 right angle triangles that support each other and when viewed from above forms the traditional Japanese craft pattern kagome moyou.

1x3

1x3 is inspired by interlocking burr puzzles. It is both - a piece of furniture and a brain teaser. All parts stay together without the need of any fixtures. The interlocking principle involves only sliding movements giving a very fast assembly process and making 1x3 appropriate for frequent change of place. The level of difficulty depends not on dexterity but mostly on spatial vision. Instructions are provided in case the user needs help. The name - 1x3 is a mathematical expression that represents the logic of the wooden structure - one element type, three pieces of it.
