The SOMA Chair interprets the draft of a lounge chair in an easy way. Honesty in shape and material, strong in its appearance but reduced on the substance.
The chair consists of several elements. The seating is appealing and filigree but defined as a closed unit. Limited through the stainless steel frame and shaped with vertical elements of a cantilever chair, the SOMA Chair generates a flexible and body adapting space.
The tubular frame borders the chair and focusses the view on the stretched and shaped fabric. Attached with zippers, many opportunities of individualization are given.
The combination of the tubular frame and planar and stretched fabric is continued in the lower part of the chair. The casted aluminum stand captures the planar outlook of the stretched fabric in its flat tails. A cylinder made of the same material provides the junction to the frame.

The SOMA Chair started as an university project featuring the topic of “stringed seating”. We created the concept for a lightweight lounge furniture as well as a first prototype within the given project time. The result was already promising and the teamwork went great when we decided to take the next step on creating a prototype that involves every process needed to be mass produced.
The SOMA Chair was the main project of our both - Florestan’s and Janis’ practical Bachelor exam.
Imagine our furniture would tell us a story. Maybe it is just an inspiration but strong enough to be enriched by our fantasies and
The LUNAR Table tells the story of new beginnings in a far away world - the childlike fantasies about infinite space and the incredible expectations in what may be hidden there.
In fact LUNAR seems to be a spaceship. The ride through the gathering darkness towards a shining star in the distance...
The materials used for LUNAR are glass, brass and coated steel. They refer to the space travel material aesthetics of the 60s. The layered, colored glass forms an inwardly deepening space with a machined brass connection in its center. The coated steel legs define the lower structure of the table. Related to the different stages of a rocket, the connection of the tabletop and the stand is made of brass components. All these elements are joined by a single screw from the bottom.

Inspired by the insignificant structure of wood paneling in concrete buildings BRETON captures the beauty of this natural influence. The surface creates a haptic experience. The appearance of a wooden board is deceiving. It is concrete – cold and heavy but filigree on its surface. In contrast to this heavy material the thin brass mountings support a light, almost levitating look.

I'm a dinosaur and you're gonna love me!
Although dinosaurs are passed away a long time before the human populated the earth they're kept alive in almost everybody's fantasy.
Many questions about these prehistoric creatures are still not answered which allows us to look for a consistent answer in our imagination.
The T-REX, this colorful primeval monster with its ironic light bulb head, reminds us of our toy dinosaurs that we loved in our childhood.

One of nature's majestic pieces of art.
The male deer shed its antlers in an annual period. As a found object this unique trophy is transformed into an abstract wardrobe. The polished concrete stand represents a visual counterweight to the natural shape of the antler – clean and reduced to its requirements as a base.
Satined copper gently combines the organic horn with the casted concrete.

In major urban communities the bicycle represents a modern way of personal luxury. Bicycles made their way to the walls of many modern living rooms as a new symbol of status.
BAMBI represents a contemporary trophy with the ability of presenting your instrument of urban mobility. It is an simple interpretation of the characteristics of the old fashioned antler trophy.
By diverting a vintage road bike handlebar from its intended use, a new product is generated that performs with or without a bicycle.
