Soft Light is a soft and flexible lamp made of foamed polyurethane. The lamp is not designed for any place in particular, instead it may be used where it is needed. Due to its unusual material properties and ductility, it functions as a crevice filling lamp that can be placed between two objects or an object and a wall.
Emitting a warm and tangible glow, its surface invites to touching and literally feeling light. You can take it into your bed for late night reading, even lie on it like on a pillow. Its curvy fluent shape provokes an organic and familiar appearance for the thoroughly synthetic and industrialized elastomeric material. As a result Soft Light is a lamp which is extremely flexible in use without having a technical appearance.
The raised bed Hochbeet results from a research on new gardening culture. Due to its independence from flooring and soil conditions, it is to be used in urban environments, with its three legs providing a sturdy position on uneven ground. Green backyards become a meeting place for families, friends and neighbours. The raised bed is made of galvanized tubular steel and weather resistant fabric.
In collaboration with Saskia Drebes, Cosima Geyer, Tim Mackerodt and Sandra Spoo.
The idea behind Alumen lies in rethinking well established desk lamps. The use of the cable in the adjustment mechanics allows for a dismissal of multiple components, reducing the appearance of Alumen to the utmost. One rotational spring (that functions as a rotation axis as well) keeps the whole construction in position, with the cable being pulled and serving a new purpose. Leaving the lamp to be moved into even extreme positions, with just the slight of a hand.
