  • KLIPP Clock
    Architecture, interior, objects: As soon as a designer — or in this case a trained architect — has found a style, an individual form of expression, working in the above categories mainly differs in terms of complexity, not so much in terms of accessibility. Furthermore, it is very easy to grasp why an architect might […]

    Kengo Kuma, the renowned architect known for his meticulous work with wooden structures, has utilised his knowledge in analogical joints to create a Japanese counterpart to Lego, named Tsumiki.

  • Monbento
    In Minimalism, it’s the little things that count. Which doesn’t mean that it’s all about fancy details one would discover on second glance. Instead, it’s the little things that accompany us every single day. The things that are as mundane and as practical as the box for your lunch and your travel food. If such things are […]
