A tubular steel frame serves as a support and frame for solid wood parts. Backrest and seat are made of solid wood, which is formed by a technology developed by Magnus Mewes and Walter Amrhyn. The stackable steel frame quotes a classic chair frame construction and once again emphasizes the curved wooden parts that nestle against the chair frame.

    The structure made of twisted flat bars form the base of the Twist table. Two times three elements create a rigid, stable structure. The glass surface of the table showcases the twisted metal construction below. Twist is finished by hand, including the multi-step, careful process of attaching the base to the glass top. The round table with a comfortable size can easily accommodate four to six people and makes a perfect dining table at home or meeting surface in an office.

      Folded aluminum sheet parts are welded together to provide different furniture items for the Studio of Deutsche & Japaner such as side tables, a sideboard, and two couch table elements. Each part is folded in a 90-degree angle and welded onto the next folded surface. This pragmatic way of construction creates a grammar that connects the different furniture items and formulates a collection that present and preserve all things around the studio.

        Klemens Grund and Thomas Schnur deal both with material, production, form and function to design a furniture item. The objects from Grund are given an atmospheric quality by the play of proportion, material and construction. Schnur's current projects reflect his interest in reduction and necessity.

          Stability through torsion – the structure made of twisted flat rods forms the base frame of the Twist side table. Two times three elements create a rigid, stable structure which, thanks to the twisting, nevertheless appears light and delicate. The table communicates portability. It can be used flexibly in the most varied of spaces and continually interacts in new ways with other items of furniture and objects.

            A stackable solid wood chair based on proven constructions and however re-constructed in terms of comfort and function. The curved backrest correspond to the human body and provide support and comfort. The seat can be equipped with wood or upholstered surfaces. Due to the aesthetic and constructive reduction, the design does not need a specific surrounding and is therefore universally usable.

              Among the innumerable objects available around the world, there are a number of objects which are known to everybody. Thomas Schnur calls them common things: These are objects which everybody - regardless of their culture, nationality, or status - has seen somewhere or has used them. Thomas shares his experiences, insights, and thoughts, in chronological order from childhood to today, on a selection of 21 common things.

The front case is a deposition for tablet, mobile phone or magazines. The container on the back offers space for a multiple plug. An extension cable can be winded around the base frame. Color and form of the object respond to the language of combinable technical products and cables. In this way the object act as go-betweens of device, furniture and living space.

                        At one time an integral part of people’s kitchens, the wash area gradually evolved over time into a separate self-contained room. Now though we are increasingly seeing bathrooms moving back into the living areas. The Stand up collection features a universal design that deliberately avoids aligning itself with one specific location. Instead, the collection embraces the notion of using furniture flexibly throughout the home. The side table can stand in the shower, or equally next to your sofa, while the curtain can screen off the shower or also serve as a suspended living room partition. The platforms and compartments of the plateau stands make personal items accessible at a convenient height to users when they are standing up.

                          The thought to design a stool in polyester-fibre-fleece came through the fascination for the material and its processing possibilities. It has a pleasant haptic and is both noise-reduced and sound absorbing. The seating surface of the ‘felt stool’ is round and communicates mobility in all directions. Its ground is square and generates stability and orientation in the room.

                            The idea of the Construct Table is to trace the table back to its construction to subsequently rethink it through a factory. This approach leads to a table which reminds of the classic bistro table and simultaneously communicates its fabrication in sheet metal. The side table consists of a round table top and three identically constructed parts which are laser cut out of 3mm sheet metal. Afterwards the parts are fixed through spot-welding.

Crafted from untreated tree trunks, every one of them is handmade and unique. Inspired by the honesty and simplicity of this man-made object, this is a bench that in terms of appearance, shape and materials retains the fundamental qualities of the traditional wooden bench. An optimized, standardized processing technique reinterprets the wooden bench and gives it access to the urban environment.

                                            Bench Chair clearly takes its inspiration from the famous Monobloc Chair but puts the associations that any chair evokes into a new context. Its curved shape is contorted into a voluminous body, thereby creating an abstract space, such that observers are confronted with a transformed hybrid.
