Fellow human sitting
First and foremost, design for human nature means feeling and understanding our own nature. What moves us, how do we behave, where do things help us to be more ourselves?
One of our first products is an easy chair, arm chair, a sitting and moving opportunity. A "moving chair" called HOMO.
When we observe ourselves and our counterparts, hardly anyone sits symmetrically or always in the same position. We designed this piece of furniture back in 1991. It looks like a sculpture, but feels as cuddly as the arm of a giant.
HOMO is a curved backrest on a stool, a body on solid ground: like a human being, ready to be leaned on, to be hugged, to hook in, to give support. HOMO lets you move. Lets you sit the way you feel. Sitting in a constantly changing position, asymmetrical, provoking change.
Connecting people to nature
Growing happiness by closely connecting people (tourists) with the region is the aim of the 'Glückswachstumsgebiet', an innovative tourism initiative developed in collaboration with the state of Schleswig-Holstein.
Being in nature, experiencing the beauty and strength of nature, makes people happy. Inspired by traditional beach chairs we designed a personal space to enable people to better connect to nature.
A large bed with smart storage capabilities makes staying in nature comfortable and easy while the convertible top provides a customizable sense of security by being weather-resistant and flexible.
In cooperation with the beach chair manufacturer of the "Mensch" Foundation we have developed this innovative serial product for a joy-enhancing experience within nature: in close contact, yet protected - cosiness and open skies, relaxation and rough sea, closeness and vastness.
Happiness through innovation.
We (are) design for human nature.
We believe in the positive human capabilities and the way to support them through universal design.
We feel and understand human existence as the connection between our inner and outer nature: An interdependence that's leading evolution.
Our work is being close to the people, always curious and enthusiastic.
We love what we do.
We build our ideas around us to immediately experience them.
Therefore, we continuously extend our workshop equipment and prototyping capabilities.
Our open space...
This freedom enables us to think forward and to shape future realities.
