KNX - table lamp
about the artist
My work targets a further interrogation within the field of product design.
I work mainly practical, always trying evolve from the early stage of drafting into a proficient, three dimensional prototype. This includes a preceded involvement with the framework and context as well as the transfer into form and proportion.
Being a freelancer since 2010, my sense of materiality, functionality and technical implementing was trained throughout a rich variety of projects within different task fields.
Next to being self-employed, a befriended designer and me founded an online platform named SPOD in 2015. SPOD creates, realizes and produces, together with other creatives, gripping product ideas, inspired by materiality, a feature or mechanics. An extensive network of production centers at home and abroad, together with our skills of implementing and distribution allow us to realize even the most diversified projects single-handedly.

about the work
KNX is a playful approach to integrate mechanical elements into an object's functioning process. It's altering mechanism is inspired by the "muller's ratchet" - a slider snapping into place, allowing to move in either direction of the gearwheel.
