FURNITURE
TWIN STOOLS  (2015)
The twins are based on the concept of fraternal twins. Genetically similar but not identical, each one has their own personality and features that make them unique. The stools work independently, but also look perfect when paired together. Both complement each other in a geometrical and proportional way.

WEARABLES
RAINPOCKET  (2016)
Rainpocket is a different type of backpack. When unfolds, the hidden emergency-rain wearable keeps you (cool and) dry. Compact, lightweight and featuring versatile straps, it can be carried like a handbag or a backpack. It will ensure you don't get caught out.

FOOD DESIGN
HIP*SICLES  (2015)
Inspired by memories of childhood summers and love for frozen ice pops, Hip*sicles rethink the experience of eating popsicles. The (experimental) food design project started with a simple idea: to imbue it with a sense of futuristic wonder and a bit more “hipness”. Hip*sicles offer an innovative formal solution in a unique multifaceted edible that breaks the norm. The result is a frozen popsicle with smooth and geometric surfaces that both visually and tastefully delights.
