A friend to take care of your plants in your city garden - a one or two-part tubular steel frame to display your potted plants that can be propped against a wall or remain free-standing. Good Design is as little design as possible.
Nature and Deliberate Mistake Series
A low stool created from a patchwork of offcuts:
• Take leftovers and combine as you wish
• For best results keep in mind the fact that two layers in some areas are harder to digest
• Best served with legs, not too big not too small (maximum length 1/3rd of width, minimum length 1/9th of width)
• Cut the extras
• For a firm aroma add more material
• Decorate yourself.
Simplicity in production and form - metal plant holders fabricated in two parts that require no welding just skilled bending and allow plants to be repotted and moved in the simplest of ways. Depending on the material chosen they can either reflect the landscape around or act as a colour feature in a lawn or flowerbed. Good design is as little design as possible
An unstructured light where the cable and bulb are not hidden but used as a creative tools to allow people to personalise their lamp using their imagination and thereby create different light qualities.
