This object translates our constant search for material combinations, simple forms and technical elegance. A sober cabinet with the naturel elements of maple and the calmness of matt, dark grey glass. Instead of using a traditional rail system for our slide panels, we based our system on an authentic system. With this solution the product has everything that it needs to be pure and reliable.

Through our interest in architectural Japanese wood jointing techniques we designed this lounge chair. Thinking about solid wooden pieces and how to join them with a specific relation of all parts. The background of our region (top producer flax 1930-1948) made us think about an alternative for the seating. Flax is a special product and we developed, in collaboration with Verilin, a linen seat for this model.
Marble and copper. Both materials were thoughtfully chosen according to their honest quality. Marble, a fragile, yet hard material that creates its own character through time. Copper, who brings up his own patina through the many touches. Both materials live there life and change through time.

Our research in themes such as Japanese ideology and avant-garde artists brought us in a design process to make this object. Tensity of basic shapes, natural elements and technical challenges are aspects that formed the basic principles of this designed utilise.table. Different elements are in relationship with each other. They form a solid piece where you can experience the constant tension if you walk around the table.
Haenge is originated from ‘the feeling’. A line that gives shade and pulls away from the wall behind it. Where the front has a hard line, it gently turns towards the rear and disappears into the shadow.
