POSSI Kitchen. powdercoated steel, corian

www.possi.kitchen

POSSI is a modular furniture which functions as a kitchen. 

The core of POSSI is a flexible framework designed to enable the individual to form variable arrangements by easy assemblage.   

The framework dictates shape and flow. POSSI is bendy. 

The muscles of POSSI are modules of functions.

POSSi is easy-fun, hyper efficient.  


POSSI’s modularity allows for the system to be rearranged and upgraded with new features and technology anytime. 

Standard production methods and materials allow for simple repair locally wherever. 

Simple and solid joints allow for the system to be easily taken apart, moved and rebuilt into initial or new arrangements.

The concept is among the finalists of Pure Talents Contest 2019 and was exhibited in January 2019. Photos of the kitchen are taken by the talented Marina Hoppmann.

In 2019 the POSSI system has been selected to be subsidised by the Hessen Ideen Stipiendium, a grant by the Ministry for Science and Arts of the federal state Hessen, Germany.

MEDITATION BENCH – SYS for Robert Johnson

SEE YOU SOON is a fund-raising concept conceived by Robert Johnson, realized with the help of collaborators and friends from various domains of design and the fine arts, who have been and still are a part of the club on various levels. Its purpose is to sustain a long period, in which the club must remain closed in order to comply with current SARS-CoV-2 regulations.

Each artist’s multiple comes with a signed and numbered certificate by the artist, and is available on pre-order for two weeks, after which its production commences and a new multiple is to be released for your consideration. Each production run may take up to two weeks. A part of the sales price covers the bare production costs, the remainder will benefit Robert Johnson—feel free to include a donation at the check-out. Give love back – See you soon!

SSC OUTDOOR KITCHEN

During a one month residency at Social Service Club, a beautiful farm located one hour outside of Copenhagen in Denmark I designed and built an outdoor kitchen. I experimented with concrete, clay and local limestone, created different mixtures and added iron-oxide for coloring the mixture.

The kitchen layout is created to cook together in gatherings with a central sink, a pizza oven made from clay and space for portable gas stoves. It is moved away from the wall and plays with the different heights of the given space. It almost gives an altar-like feeling while standing behind the sink and gas stoves. It aims to put the cooking together in the centre and embraces the nature surrounding it by using materials of the area and colors related to the given architecture.

BEE HOME

IKEA’s research and design lab SPACE10 has teamed up with Bakken & Bæck and product designer Tanita Klein to launch an open source Bee Home. Bees are essential for all life on our planet—including one third of all the food we eat —but bees are under increasing threat of extinction due to human impact. That’s why SPACE10 wants to make it easy for anyone, anywhere to design a beautiful home for this vital animal.


Bee Home launches on United Nations International Bee Day, May 20, and the open-source design will be available for free on

OPEN OFFICE. furniture

The open office furniture collection explores the potential of a new era for offices. A shop space was turned into an office where the shop front acts as a transitioning area from outside to inside, between work and leisure.

A counter serving as a meeting spot during office hours and as a bar after work. A sofa table for lifting your feet while having a coffee break, and a wall shelf holding knowledge in form of books, products being sold or just the wine and beer being served during after work hours.

The office space is located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

OFF PLATE. temporary restaurant for the future of dining

off plate is a newly formed temporary restaurant collective that aims to portray how & what cuisine will look like in 2050, respective to the FAO report focused on transforming food & agriculture to reach the SDGs. We invited people to partake in one of four delectable evenings, scheduled during imm cologne 2020. The evening menus had been especially curated to fuse German & international cuisines with local & seasonal ingredients, in various dietary styles – flexitarian, vegetarian, vegan.

Invited chefs prepared their evening’s courses on the TSL Kitchen (a Tanita Klein design), along with paired wine & cocktail selections, devised by ebb&flow wine, all served on tap. Wine tapped fresh into the glass from Weingut Hamm (Oestrich-Winkel, Rheingau).

Off plate collective is formed by Tanita Klein, Philipp Neveling, Deandra Anderson, Markella Samartzidou & Morgana Hohenstein.

There are more evenings in different cities around Europe to follow.

EVERYBODY IN

Everybody in is spatial concept for MONTANA furniture and FRAME magazine in collaboration with Studio KBB.

Everybody in is translating a fluid office lobby into a space with different characters and functions for welcoming visitors, having short meetings, a coffee break or just and afterwork beer.  

With the playfulness of the different characters we aim to an open-to-all and welcoming environment. Giving objects characters breaks the normal structure of an office or even the ice between employees and any visitor. Each personality tells a story and is open for more office stories to come.

The spatial concept was realized and on show for 3daysofdesign in September 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
