The abstract volumes of the Space Frames are based on archetypical architectural elements such as arcs, columns, trusses and plates. The Space Frames are made from lightweight wooden structures enclosed by a textile cover: an experimental research into physical and visual lightness, balance and stability.
Building methods and construction principles as applied in industrial architecture are an endless source of inspiration for the studio because of their consistency in structure, material and experience. By scaling down components and changing materiality, objects arise that can be used in a domestic or commercial environment but still keep their architectural and autonomous character.
