Both classical typologies of furniture made with attention to functionality, the capacity of material and clearness - aspects that seem to connect the two piece of furniture by Klemens Grund and Thomas Schnur. But each object where created under totally various circumstances. Both designers are working since some years independently as designer and met the first time some months ago. They immediately discovered some similarities in their work and decided to present two objects (each one per designer) in front to each other to create a confrontation that transfer their dialog into an ‘converstaion piece’ for the public.
