Carbon Activated Timber

Carbon Activated Timber Bench is designed for public areas and is made from reclaimed wood planks. It challenges the notions of weight and stability.

UnLimited

UnLimited is a fully waterproof and size adjustable backpack tailored to the needs of an urban slow cyclist. It can both expand to accommodate unexpected items and compress to keep the backpack streamlined to allow for better mobility. Following the design philosophy for 'design of reduction', the backpack is sealed by heat welding and made of mono-material DuPont Hytrel, or similar recyclable thermoplastic elastomers with different levels of hardness. This feature is in stark contrast to the backpacks on the market today, which are multi-material and hard to recycle.

Waterfall Towers

The building transcends location as it reformulates an artificial site that becomes part of a unified natural environment. The limit between the city and nature is defined and intensified by the presence of the dam. Every form relates another, reflecting the symbiotic ordering systems of nature. More particularly in the specific concept, the fusion of landscape and architecture happens with the use of the flow of water as a functional and subsequently an organizational element.
