” Abri-boca explores the theme of transformation- the transition between open spaces to more intimate and enclosed ones. My goal was to primarily observe, understand and research the meaning of “transformation”, which should ultimately lead to a discovery of a new product. I propose that people need “spaces of calmness” to direct the course that they want to live. Yet, these “spaces” seem to vanish in our daily routines. Relaxation, calmness and the awareness that comes from having time to disconnect seem to have a decreasing part in our live. Pursuing that thought, I have conducted research at the intersection of nature, motion, society and living spaces. My goal has been to ultimately create an object that symbolizes and captures the meaning of “Transformation” and creates the user a space to retreat from the hustle of daily live. My design affords users to rest within the object in an open state, and if more privacy is desired, one can easily pull the wooden shell closed via a pivoting mechanism, creating a protective canopy over the occupant.” – Philipp Süssmann

‘Sugar Skull Spoon, born from the happy realization that with a simple twist, the humble tea spoon could become the perfect home accessory for fans of the macabre (and fans of hot drinks!). The Sugar Skull tea spoon is the perfect gift for those who need reminding to take a little less sugar in their drinks, and even if you don’t, it’s still MUCH more interesting than a regular spoon…’ Link here.
