We are involved in a creative process. We design and/or build, produce interiors, furniture, art and photographs for clients.
The combination of beauty, simplicity and ease of use might be a very valid and lucky solution for many challenges considering interior architecture, furniture and design. Thus we cheer up in our own invented space and have time and can concentrate on our private lives.
To reduce costs we could challenge clients to build things themselves and rely on our design and objectives.
The design, detailing and/or manufacture of exhibitions demands a very special focus and communication on lots of targets; reason, challenge, goals, public, time, budget... Whether inventive with re-use of materials, or new sleek design for condensed and intrinsic qualities, the combination of factors demands a birds-eye perspective to control any project involved.
To realize all kinds of projects is one of our main resources. Working together constantly tracks the real world and real situations and thus gives us a constant flow of information and feed-back. Nobody can solve everything alone, we try to optimize our efforts to smooth our paths and, when necessary, to stay cool and collected to the mentioned budgets.
We document work of our clients and of other creative people. In photography we try to find the gesture; of buildings, persons, situations, of art and objects.
The gestures in our surroundings as being meaningful in time.
To us, drawings are dreams which get a realistic form. It is a craft, and an adventurous way of research and development. It can be poetic as well as down to earth. They might stand the times, with their beauty, their immediate freshness and spontaneity.
We published some books about this subject.
