Airsquare? is a modular plastics foam shelving system. The high-tech material ? used in automobile and aircraft construction ? is sturdy and very lightweight.
The system consists of single cubes, each cube only weighs approx. 1 kilo and can be used individually or be assembled into a complete and resilient shelving system using hidden knobs. One cube holds approx. 15 kilos.
Height adjustable powder-coated metal feet level the system on bumpy floors. Metal cube tops refine the surface of sideboards and bed side tables.

The base consists of flexible cross braced plywood and powder-coated sheet steel table legs offering lots of leg room. The cross braces are prestressed and bolted to the table legs and table top.
The table is extremely stable and resilient. The amiable, roundly table top is made of beech Multiplex with a HPL-surface.

walker? reinterprets the rocking chair: Wooden legs fanned out in different lengths replace the traditional runners. When conjoining the end points of the legs with an imaginary line the curve which enables the chair to rock is clear.
Rubber buffers extending the chair legs provide for a smooth swing. The basic shape of walker is that of a classic wooden chair. Underlining the classic expression the chair will be manufactured in matt-finished oak wood.
The replication of the chair legs gives the model an expression of its own. It turns into a sculpture-like object exiting an image of dynamic. When rocking the chair it seems as if walker becomes an animated being in motion.
