Bed

Biel 03.11.2020

Inspired by Futon beds. A reduced design and therefore a simple construction. The slatted frame integrated in a different way. 

 

Thirteen spruce logs, two aluminum tubes, four solid spruce legs, and four 3D printed covers. The screws are invisible. That's it!

 



Koun

Biel 27.12.2019

Koun is a unique and novel smoothiemaker.It is easy to store and saves a lot of space in the kitchen. 

It also eliminates packaging material in the sales area because its cup is made of strong chrome steel and all components fit in it.

 

Due to its construction it is not a disposable product.

That means it is repairable and therefore reduces waste.

 

With the corresponding app, Koun can be timed, so that the smoothie is ready in the morning when time is short. The app also includes a tracking service and makes regional and seasonal recipe suggestions for smoothies that you can share with your friends.

rotor blade pier

Biel 24.06.2019

The rotor blades of wind turbines have to be replaced approximately every twenty years. This means a lot of material in search of a second life.

 

This is where Bladesign comes in. The company - founded by economics students - mediates between creative makers and wind power companies. This is how new innovative ideas emerge, which generate an upcycling product from the "waste".

Norassy



Biel 01.03.2019

In the many cities of Europe, a great number of different cultures come together which makes integration and social networking a challenging task. The best way to connect people of different faith and descent are children. Children do not care about your skin colour or what language you speak. The most important thing for them is playing — adults could learn from that. The floor plan ensures barrier-free movement for people with reduced mobility and brings parents together effortlessly. What's more, the open design of the terrace allows for parents to interact with other parents while the children play in the hall below. 

A minimum entrance fee will be necessary. However, the indoor and outdoor playground should aim at different social classes and in case of a surplus, that money will help those who do not have enough. The playground will be the meeting point of many countries and religions. They will be represented by toys and come in the shapes of food, animals, famous sights or symbols typical of the respective countries and religions. That is how the different cultures are addressed, but what matters most is that you can play with everything and everybody!

Nebia / furniture for backstage

Biel 06.12.2018

The Palace in Biel/Bienne was rebuilt. Three backstage rooms of the Nebia Theatre are used as cloakroom and dressing room or as overnight accommodation for artists. Our special task was to develop a piece of furniture that is both a spacious dressing table and a comfortable bed. The challenge was to not only fulfil the purpose of the furniture in both conditions but also to make it clearly visible. 

 

Projektleiterin: Marynelle Débetaz

Cooperation:  Sylvie Kaspar


The bold mixture of fine plywood and sparse water pipes make the high-quality furniture appear in a playful space. The oblong holes and the indentations at the front of the tabletop make the bed optically lighter. The distance to the floor prevents the feet from bumping into the bed. The furniture is symmetrical. It does not matter which side is facing the wall and is folded up. It is also a lightweight construction. Therefore one person can lift the bed to the table. By pushing it to the right, the furniture snaps into place. A water lever as an eye-catcher ensures that the bed slides back. The bars serve in both states as a wardrobe for wigs, costumes, coats etc.
