Standing at the water`s edge, you observe the water. Suspended on the surface, the surroundings merge. Shapes are refracted and transformed. The water's surface mirrors and reflects. The objective becomes subjective. Everything is in motion, flowing and changing. › more
The Autumn/Winter 17.18 collection's trend topic are »vulcanoes«. Heat, ash - and then the big freeze. When Mount Tambora, a volcano on the island of Sumbawa, erupted in April 1815, Switzerland saw snow that same August. Volcanoes mould the shape of the earth. › more

The Autumn/Winter 14.15 collection's themes are »structure« and »texture«. The models address the construction and nature of things, their shape and spatial order. At the same time, they examine structure pertaining to »cities«.
