orn and raised in Austria, Christoph recently graduated in interior design at Parsons School of Design, NYC. With a background in industrial design, Christoph earned is MSc degree with honors in 2010, including a student exchange term with The Academy of Fine Arts in Guangzhou, China. In 2010 he moved to Berlin and co-founded a design agency with a focus on product design, motion graphic and graphic design. Since 2016 he lives in New York.

M

y first exposure to design was at the age of 15 when I started using and exploring 3D programs; Since then my passion for creating shapes in any form has greatly increased. In the beginning of my

industrial design studies, I felt the urge to create a holistic design that combined architecture, interior design, industrial/product design and fashion design. I was especially intrigued by the fact that, despite the complexity of each profession, they shared far more similarity than it seemed at first glance. Each of these cat-

egories has a common final objective that is deeply connected to human beings but differentiates in its relationship to the human body and the type of mental work required to accomplish it. However, if you combine all four approaches, you can begin to understand design in its completeness, observing and considering it from several different angles.

he goal was to create a piece of furniture

that is built into or onto a wall in an 8’ by 10’ room, with a ceiling height of 8’. The room and the furniture is for a single person. For many, there is never time and people are constantly in a rush. This problem inspired the idea for a place to have an efficient power nap, with a seat that gives you an encompassing feeling of safety and comfort.

his exploration of an office building is intended to connect different design majors and provide a platform to interact and intertwine each discipline. Architecture, interior, product and fashion design find a place in one location, subdivided in private offices, co-working spaces and workshop areas. Focus was put on finding an overall design language and to then reflect it into the space. A spectrum of private and open spaces are connected without a common staircase, but instead, with a layered and fluid circulation embedded in the formal language.

he first part of this exercise was to analyze an object and find its es-

sential characteristics. From the formal exploration of the Russian Doll came three decisive terms: Offset - Nest - and Scale. Out of several abstract variations, the three most successful approaches (top right) became the base for finding a significant formal language. By combining these approaches, the final interpretation of the Russian Doll’s nature was established.

he final abstract depiction of the

Russian Doll is a arrangement of diverse faces, which can be assembled differently. The model can be expressed in either a concave or convex fashion, that showcase negative space and a sense of offsetting and scaling. An important aspect is the directional changes of the layers.

he main idea focuses on intertwin-

ing the space. As the initial shape of the building is a cupoid, the concept of growing from each face towards the center was the most efficient method of creating an interweaving condition. Starting on each face with a “seed�, the space grows together with three layers, which each have a specific characteristic, definition and function.

he office building provides several levels of privacy. There are enclosed private offices, spacious coworking areas and communal spaces. The glass-encased architecture provides a lot of daylight and convenient working conditions. With its shaded glass, the fourth layer protects the space from shafts of sunlight and from overheating. Additional sunscreens are contemplated for each office and co-working space.

he possibility to realize and create ideas is as much important as the idea itself. It pushes the process further to the next level of exploration and knowledge, increases the level of a concept and makes it much more efficient. Furthermore the working with materials let you grow in understanding the touch of sense and its sensibility. The design of the space range from a very clear, bright scientific area to a high luxury, warm, moody space, rich of texture and pattern.

he realization of peoples ideas is the main point of this cultural gen-

erator. The space provides a long list of high-end computer aided machines and technologies. Among all these machines there is also a crusher for old plastic, which enables the production of the feed stock for the 3D printing machines. The building itself is located in Long Island City, has five stories and enough space to create new ideas.

here are three design groups in this space, which each follows a special order of related shapes. The labs and workshops build the first group, followed by the lounge area as second. The bar together with the entrance hall build the third group and represent a black and white graphic based design, rich in contrast. Bar and entrance hall share a diagonal wall, which provides space where it is needed and reduces height for a more comfortable ambient. The passage which leads to the lounge area uses the most light absorbing color to completely split the ambient of the two different spaces. A special feature of interaction between guest and hotel provides the adjustable light on the ceiling in the lounge area.

The idea was to let women from the past explore contemporary female design. Every depiction of a woman on the right side is a close up of almost 150+ paintings housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Later, they are expressed in an animation, to explore the space from several point of views. The faces were arranged in a concentric order for a better sequencing of the animation.

t is important that the selection of the material provide a semi-transparent

surface for the projection of the data. Additionally the color choice invokes a futuristic appearance and, after exploring its nature in a lighting lab, it offered a surreal condition by vanishing the boarder between the object itself and its projection. It also has an intense reaction under a different color spectrum - appearing completely opaque under red light and completely transparent under blue light.

he goal was to create a piece of furniture that is built into or onto

a wall in an 8’ by 10’ room, with a ceiling height of 8’. The room and the furniture is for a single person. For many, there is never time and people are constantly in a rush. This problem inspired the idea for a place to have an efficient power nap, with a seat that gives you an encompassing feeling of safety and comfort.


T

he idea results in a very solid ergonomic solution made out of stone, as this material has a good warming and also cooling quality. To reach the seat you have to pass an ‘uncomfortable’ zone which, in turn, gives the seat a sense of a safe haven that needs to be reached. While resting in your safety seat, you have an amazing view through a floor to ceiling window. In addition, the sunlight gets reflected by a strip of water that brings a calm movement into the room, to help you settle and relax.

T

he idea of a hard shell seat was inspired by those in roller coaster

and racing cars, as they have the highest level of safety but still are very comfortable. They give support to every part of the body and let every muscle relax. The higher position of the seat gives a floating effect so that you can calm down and settle into your twenty minute power nap.

FRAME S PRI NG 18 F URNI TURE DESIGN

F

rame is the overall concept for a bedroom, for a given floor plan of 12’ by 16’ and a 9’ high ceiling. This furniture design exercise focuses on the design of a king size bed while also considering the contextual importance of the surrounding room.


T

o explore and research the options and opportunities of a bed and its shape, a form catalog was created. It displays a broad range of solutions and serves as a backup of ideas to go back to if needed. The idea behind the concept is to design every piece of furniture out of frames that can be filled with soft materi-

als. A black frame creates an initial outline and helps communicate the sense of the room, and then can be filled with colorful variation of cushions and soft surfaces.

This solution is very interesting in terms of small living spaces and restricted use of rooms. The ornament dividers create an additional layer of privacy to the ‘room in the room’ concept. Lighted from the center of the bed, it let the whole room appear in a rich textured atmosphere. The bed with its covering also creates a sequence of extrusion and lines with door and window with its formal language.

A

live-work space was my very first studio project at Parsons School of Design. It is a redesign of the

Liberty Inn Hotel at the Hudson River in NYC and is my first approach to interior design in its entirely. Three terms define the concept and reflect the general ideas and principles of the design. The concepts of Knowledge, Time and Exploration were the focus and pillars for this design


E

verybody is capable of creating things, that’s not hard. Anybody is able to be

a designer and anybody is able to be an artist. For elevated design there are three essential aspects which create a fundamental base. There is no getting around the terms “knowledge”, “exploration” and “time”. Of course, these are huge, heavy loaded terms, which first have to be broken down into more concrete ideas. KNOWLEDGE compromises the existing knowledge, history, stories, data and facts but also skills and accomplishments. TIME as a term, is the quality you spend sharing your knowledge and exploration. Everybody has the same amount of time per day and everybody uses it differently. Some put their time in studying things like art, law, engineering, archeology or politics. Others spend time meditating and find inner satisfaction, philosophizing, or contemplating the universe. However you spend your time, you are never ever able to do all of these things, even if you wanted to. Therefore sharing your thoughts, knowledge and exploration is enriching for both sides. For you to express your mind and thoughts, and for others to gain a different point of you and understanding. The goal was to create a space where knowledge could come into opposition with exploration, all while being mediated by time. EXPLORATION means creating knowledge. Everybody produces a mass of new knowledge through exploration, while ascertaining the limits and trying out new things. It is not possible to find personal exploration in books, it is not possible to “google” it or find it in any library, you can only create your own knowledge by doing something, which is not only essential for design but also for personal growth. It is integral in the process of understanding yourself and who you want to be, setting future goals, and gaining motivation.

three dimensional physical mod-

el should depict the idea of the project. Knowledge lies in the crafting of these parallelepipedi, which required the making of a 3D printed jig. Time is represented in height and reflects the quality - the higher, the more detailed in its nature. The exploration was to play around with different materials to understand how they act and react.

T

he next step was the development of the space, the program, and its two-dimensional diagram. ‘Knowledge’ found its place on one end of the building, represented by the library. On the other side of the building, ‘Exploration’ became a place to explore yourself through a mediation room. In between there is the kitchen and living room, to depict ‘Time’, as a place to share and spend time with others. Level of privacy decrease towards the center of the space.

SUSTAINABILITY What does it mean for you after the course and readings to design for Sustainability? We should definitely think more broadly as a designer. It is not only the interiors that makes us unique, it is the consideration about how we consume, what we really need, what is necessary to have a good life and how we use tour planet’s finite resources. It is important to convince people to build sustainable, to spend that extra dollar for high-quality products energy consumption and save costs in the long term. Unsustainable habits are convenient, so we must focus on motivating and showing people that there are more efficient and ecological ways of doing things that are just as convenient. We just have to make the first step - lead others and push our communities a step in the right direction. Every decision we make as a designer has a consequence on the environment and our health and it is a big duty to handle this, but we can do it. In the next 15 years more than 75% of all buildings will be either new or renovated and it is now our chance to make a huge impact for a positive future by adopting more sustainable practices. Now or never!

SINUS SPRING 15 SUN LOUNGER

T

he unlimited number of individualized lying positions signifies the special feature of Sinus. The com-

pletely different folding concept of the lying surface goes without a snapping raster and operates with tension, not compression.


T

he design picks up the mood of a warmly, round-shaped light-wave of the sun. The clear and linear characteristic of the shadow creates the counterpart. Inspired from a neck pillow or a massage table, your head will rest on a smooth shaped, wooden ring.

S

inus is made out of bent aluminum tubes. The wavy carrying frame consists of two tubes sym-

metrically connected. The lying surface is composed of four parts connected with each other by using spring-loaded joints, which can be fixed to stiffen the frame. To fix diverse positions a wrapped rope en-

n the course of a design and development

competition,

tendered

by

the company ECHOM, a completely new concept of a flat screen TV with 3Gtechnology was designed and realized. CRYSTAL came off as winner of this com-

petition and represents a flat screen TV extended with an audio-visual feature, which is eye-minded conveyed through his crystalline shape.


I

n the course of a design and devel-

opment competition, tendered by the company ECHOM, a completely new concept of a flat screen TV with 3G-technology was designed and real-

ized. ECHOM Technology Co., Ltd. in Guangzhou is one of the leading industrial design companies in China. Place of business is the forward-looking area of development called Guangzhou Science City and their clientele is based in automotive design, medical engineering and technology as well as in consumer electronics. The product design CRYSTAL came off as winner of this competition and represents a flat screen TV extended with an audio-visual feature, which is eye-minded conveyed through his crystalline shape. This audio-visual component creates light to the rhythm of music and generates individual atmosphere in the room. A rotary arrangement of highperformance spots combined with a mirrored surface inside, which guides the light into the room, CRYSTAL lives up to one’s name and effectively expands its operational area. Furthermore the 2009 in Japan and China already popular 3Gtechnology was integrated in this flat screen TV. Including this technology right from the design stage this TV became a manifold and multimedia-based electrical device and obtain highly acceptance in this branch due to its unique design. While present TVs pursue the principle of form-follows-function, both requirements go hand in hand with this generation of flat screen TV. A casing of hard glass enfolds the TV and became a considerable, elegant sculpture, even though while switched off. The in 2009 from ECHOM produced CRYSTAL was already presented at numerous design fairs and has the potential, to change the flat screen TV to a more and more multi-functional device.

alming, animating, motivating... the sound sets the pace. The special feature is a circle of spots,

which are rotating behind the display screen. Mirrors are on the inner surface of the back and send the light smoothly into the room. The spots change the color and the intensity of light. The rotary arrange-

ment of spots moves in different tempi, addicted to the kind of music. Altogether enfold in a hard glass casing.

COLIPRI MEASURING INSTRUMENT REDESIGN

T

his device represents a successful result of ergonomic studies, which

focused on the use with one hand. COLIPRI is small, easy to handle in every direction, which is the main criteria of this type of measuring tool.


A

n absolutely new ergonomic redesign enables a easy handling of this measuring instrument. To ana-

lyze and check the correct way of fabrication, COLIPRI steals the show with its simple shaped design. Ensures one-handed usage in any position, if overarm working under a train to check its chassis or measuring in extremely tight, winding locations. The measuring requires a parallel moving and so the cylindrical design offers ideal terms and conditions.

26


P

oint of departure was a clumsy “brick� of plastic, as demonstrated on the right side. Without feasible one-hand operation and not well adjusted to the inner life. Not so the redesign. COLIPRI is made out of high quality thermosetting plastic case and a nonslip pushbutton control. Rotating and handling with one hand easily it is also small enough to store it on a tool belt. This measuring de-

T

his device is expandable with various parts, which can be easily at-

or’s optical level or a tripod connection.

VERTEBRA FLOOR LAMP

T

his lamp results from plenty studies in folding structures and tech-

niques. The final folding concept has the right level of freedom in move-

ment and a high stability. Furthermore this complex shap is easy to creat / produce out of plane materials.


W

ith a self created folding tech-

nique it is possible to pleat a single stripe of paper to a kind of a spine. Performing like a human one and imply a similar sense of eye-catching aesthetic, this concept was the headstone for VERTEBRA. This unique technique in combination with a goose-neck rod gives the folding stability and on the other hand the folding procures conserving the rod’s line, like everybody knows the eyebrowrising shape of a goose-neck rod after deforming twice. VERTEBRA satisfy your individual creativity in a unlimited range of deforming. Rings, waves, straights or twisted ones, it ensures always a well defined curve without buckles.

T

he folding is made out of a sandwich structure based material. Each section contains LEDs to equip every

vertebra - inside mirrored - with light. The cast iron base enables stability even favor-
