The fusion of athlete and equipment

freestyle - kayak Freestyle kajaking is a relatively young offshoot of the canoe sport, where athletes perform tricks (moves) similar to those of skaters, snowboarders or surfers. They turn, roll and rotate their boats in countercurrents in the rivers white water. My goal was to enhance the bond between the athlete and his sports equipment. I wanted to improve in terms of the ergonomics, the appearance and the interior. The boat should feel like an extension of the body and merge with the athlete while still appearing to be a piece of freestyle sports equipment.

My product is a freestyle kajak, in which the athlete fuses with the hull while beeing fully supported by it. You can move freely in the water and thus is able to experience this element with a higher intensity. Without using the straps, that normally hold an athlete in place, beginners can try out this sport without fear of getting stuck in the boat under water etc. The boat shows a clear orientation forward and opens up for the athlete in the area of the seat.

sailing chair design contest // winner

in collaboration with johannes rave

the design contest was arranged by the company forest finance. the task was to look for a possibility to use the wood they are harvesting in panama. the design of the chair represents several panama trade marks, like the landscape, the culture and the famous canal. the seating cloth is tied between the bent wood like the seat of a sail boat and the chair legs resemble the curved bridges of panama that connect north- and southamerica. produktionsstart voraussichtlich ende des jahres

“MAKE SOME NOISE” “Make Some Noise” is a radical new Concept for headphones. The logic behind These “loud” speakers is purely semantics. By imitating the look of mid/bass loudspeaker chassis the product instantly communicates power, music, high volumes, aggression and really high end sound and crafting quality.

street furniture for public space

hanging chair this bench is a concept for puplic spaces and buildings like surgerys or other waiting rooms. the user can move each chairs in its favourite direction and position. it is a completely new seating sensation, easy to assemble and clean.


in cooperation with stefan jäger

Minimalism and the breaking up of the expectations in the eye of the beholder make us show the necessity and aesthetics of the material as well as its converting. Shaped wood in its simplest and most essential form Despite the simple application of the material, shaped wood is indispensable here, a must which only becomes obvious at second sight. The necessity of the use of the material is illustrated by the bended edge of the table board. The – at first sight – randomized cross-ties, which constitute the table-legs, are creatively along the lines with architecture and lightweight design. They form a contrast to the appeasing designed surfaces which they are in between or which they break through, respectively.
