Is it possible to design a functional product while using less material than if it didn’t exist at all? Is it possible to leave out material and create something graceful that serves a function?
That is the question which has been driving us for more than a year. We engaged with it intensely because we felt that the time was right to tackle these issues. The architects Meier Leder from Baden are building a house in which this project is being implemented. It is primarily about holes and gaps. Even the simple question of the shape and quality of the hole already stimulates an interest beyond purely formal considerations. The project will soon be cast. It will be our most radical contribution to the world of objects so far.
