Sushi Lamp is a table companion that emits light and serves as a container. The light source is made of a satin finished LED tube that distributes light evenly. The extruded base of the lamp accommodates small objects like chopsticks, napkins or pens. Its look is based on the shape of Hoso Maki, a type of sushi. It functions in restaurant and office environments.
Grid Shelf is a sieving unit that indirectly conducts how its user organises their inventory. By applying different sized grid structures as shelves it directs the subdivision of things thus creating an order. Small objects fall through the wider sized grid whereas larger objects stay on top.

The Blackbird Lamp features an edged design thatbalances its craning light on two feet. It’s simply constructed from a single sheet of steel. The LED light source incorporates a motion sensor which functions as the on/off switch. By waving one’s hand under the shade you activate the light. Holding one’s hand for a couple of seconds activates the dimming mode on the lamp, allowing for a smoother, more nuanced setting.
Sorting things and reorganising them is as natural as birds collecting and assembling sticks to make their nests. But sometimes we can get hung up on the act of establishing order. It can become an obsession.
With ‘Oddly Satisfying’ Hayo Gebauer aims to show the beauty of such behaviour. Instead of hiding our storage systems away like a dirty habit, these objects are designed to use in plain sight, for all to admire. The ribbed surfaces accommodate all manner of household objects and the set can be combined and stacked according to individual tastes. Whether to help keep a workplace tidy or to compulsively arrange individual strands of spaghetti, it’s up to the user.
The Frame Chair’s appearance might be slim but it features a clever combination of its individual parts resulting in an elaborate and solid construction. The two frame parts hold the seating board in only four points which completes the adhesion. All parts are constructed from flat boards. With this approach it was possible to rely only on simple tools and manufacturing processes for wood working.
The Moiré Mirror is both: reflector and light source. Hidden behind the one way mirror is a lamp which becomes visible once you grab a second disc hidden behind the glass which can be rotated. The backside of the mirror and the second disc have a lightproof pattern added to them which darken the mirror in a certain position. With this approach of overlaying it is not only possible to shade the light, but also to control the optical effect.
