Project
Introduction

Unprecedented Fireplace APOLLO
APOLLO is inspired by UFO in science fiction movies, which resembles a UFO with a central panel of 360-degree curved glass, catering to futuristic design concepts and giving users a viewing experience of the whole landscape without dead corners. There are two alcohol and wood burning modes in this fireplace, which are renewable energy and meet the sustainable development. It incorporates the aesthetic sensation of intense tension thanks to its outstanding scientific and technological strength. In addition to emitting brilliant light, the flickering flame also stokes consumers' enthusiasm and pursuit of aesthetics in daily life.
Panoramic View for Excellent Experience
APOLLO is a suspended fireplace with transparent glass that is completely high-temperature resistant and formed like an arc; and there is no column in the center. It has amazing panoramic views of the fire and can view it in a full 360 degrees. A sliding rail design significantly increases the life span and the smoothness of the glass door when it is pushed and pulled. The translucent and clear glass texture has a very high-light transmittance, which makes people inebriated in this leaping fire. You can enjoy the pleasure of meals while admiring the fire thanks to the baking plate of the wood-burning fireplace. This merely further emphasizes the user's pursuit of the beauty of nature and the emotion of seeking freedom from the bustling city.
Exquisite Craftsmanship, Fashionable and Elegant
The surface of APOLLO uses cutting-edge baking paint technology, which has greater adhesion, is difficult to scratch, and is difficult to fall off in a high-temperature environment. After high-frequency sand blasting, the metal's frosted texture, which enhances visual impact and fulfills the function of beautifying décor, expresses the product's massiness and distinctive charm. This item can be regarded as the ideal synthesis of home culture, comfort, and aesthetics.
Integrated Fireplace with Modular Design
The 5mm preferred carbon steel plate adopted by APOLLO for pressing and forming solves the issues of challenging processing and demanding mold specifications, and the average wall thickness of APOLLO is no less than 4mm thanks to integrated high-pressure welding and forming technology, which also resists deformation even in high temperature environments. Independent integrated base is steadfast and stable. Modular design allows for the selection of 200mm, 500mm, and 1000mm extension pipes, substantially reducing the production cycle, simplifying installation, while enhancing the overall visual impression, pursuing quality, and taking user experience into account.
Advanced Technology - Always Pursuing Excellent
APOLLO introduces leading air inlet technology for combustion in closed environment, which is used at the bottom to ensure full combustion and achieve better heating effect and higher environmental protection requirements. Glass wind curtain technology keeps the glass clean and transparent during the burning. These advanced technologies are applied to create excellent quality and provide users with a better experience in the spirit of excellence.
Take Green Energy as Fuel, Safe & Eco-friendly
The other type of ethanol fireplace adopts the straight row and uses renewable bioethanol as energy, which doesn't produce smoke or ash and avoids cleaning troubles, also with no need to connect the smoke pipe, solving the installation limitation in ordinary buildings and high-rise residences. Additionally, the 800℃ high temperature special paints that will not peel off, fade or make odor after burning at high temperature, are used to meet the requirements of environmental protection, safe and green.

Projet
Introduction

. The basic task was to develop a sustainable, metal-free, mass-produced and modularly expandable desk that could complement the existing bed KIDD of GUUT GmbH. On the one hand, the desk had to meet the requirements of GUUT GmbH in terms of a CO2-neutral product, thus consists entirely of components developed and produced locally in a sustainable manner and, on the other hand, it had to be easy to pack. The most difficult task was to establish reasonable production costs. Together with the bed, the desk NIVOO now forms the basis for a children's sustainable furniture series that is currently under development with the aim of becoming CO2-negative.
Dimensions (LxWxH):
in cm: 130x60x72,5 H = 125 cm with canopy
PLAY ON 3 -7 years old: NIVOO has a table height of 52 cm and serves as a stage, a playground in your own empire. The (heaven) tent offers light and space for the imagination of the kiddos. If the light band fed with solar cells is threaded into the back of the tent, you get a spectacularly illuminated stage. If, on the other hand, the light band is threaded at the front of the tent, the tent room is perfectly illuminated for work.
GROW ON 8 -15 years old: With a table height of 62 cm, NIVOO becomes an inspiring and faithful companion for adolescents. From capturing creative ideas, satisfying the thirst for knowledge to the first love letter - NIVOO is always at your side. The practical optional shelves elegantly complete the workplace.
WORK ON 16 -99 years old: With a working height of 72 cm, NIVOO becomes an aesthetic and stable workplace and a creative retreat for all, fitting into any living space as a decorative piece.
The basic structure consists of 4 wooden legs which are guided through a body with drawers. The lower plate of the body has a notch next to each leg’s opening. In the notches are housed the supports of wooden dowels guided through the legs to prevent them from slipping. At the upper end, the table legs have an elliptical cross-section so that they do not twist, at the lower end the section is circular to achieve the most elegant effect.
A rope construction is used to stiffen the system. Under the table, there is a deflection for 2 ropes, which are fixed with a wooden thread and which are guided laterally to the left and right. One end of each rope is threaded through a hole in a table leg or can be fixed there for reinforcement by means of an eight-sling. Each end is then threaded through two holes in the lower table top and braced there. On each side of the table there are two wooden screws, which clamp the rope ends and serve as child protection. The tent poles as well as the dowels on the undersides of the shelves are inserted through the head ends of the legs and locked underneath the table top by tensioning the ropes.

Born in Western Austria I currently practice as an Architect and Designer in Vienna and Lustenau, where I develop and design high-quality design furniture.
In my design work the questions about functionality and quality as well as the use of natural and sustainable materials are in the centre of the development process. It’s all about the clarity of design and the deliberate restraint to the essential which averts superficial attention: modest, sophisticated and sometimes calm in nature, these pieces of furniture make a point that great design does not tolerate hierarchies or compromise in the interaction of form and function. Sometimes just the simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of one of these jewels for your home or office.
Modern design, in particular combinations of steel and solid wood, resolves into timeless and aesthetic furniture that beautifies our everyday life.

finiix
Winner of 2022 SILVER Prize

Design of Furniture

Project
Introduction

. finiix is the first CO2-negative indoor furniture line. An ECO design guideline was developed to minimize the ecological footprint and maximize the life cycle of this furniture line. The guideline is based on the results of the KATCH-e research project and its resulting circular design strategies. It makes it possible to anchor the circular economy idea in the design process of the collection and to develop a product design that minimizes the CO2-footprint over the entire product life cycle. finiix is designed to expose sustainable furniture design to a broader and younger target audience. The series consists of a bed, various side tables, a sideboard, a bar, a tower and a closet.
It is currently being expanded with a sofa and a desk. Depending on the size of the product, the construction kit is designed in a way that enables an intuitively assemblance and easy transportation for the end user. In the case of the side table, for example, the cylindrical sticks at the end of the rows of sticks have opposing wooden threads, the sticks in the middle of the row are plugged in, and the legs are screwed to the bottom panel with wooden threads. In the sideboard, all the outer (semi-cylindrical) rods are plugged, the whole is fixed by four cylindrical rods with legs. In the case of the bed or the chest, the elements for assemblance are larger; specially developed connecting pieces are used here to ensure the longevity of finiix furniture.
The choice of materials is driven by the reduction to the essentials and the simplicity of processing to ensure a reduction of waste in the manufacturing process in a CO2-neutral manner so that all materials used can be recycled. By using regional wood from sustainable cultivation, our understanding of sustainability already begins with the selection of raw materials and naturally also includes the ethical and social standards with regard to working conditions.
The COVID pandemic, the climate crisis and the increased environmental awareness make many people see life differently than before. These changes coming our way are a fundamental part of a new era. This upheaval offers the chance to free sustainable design from its niche existence and to put Austrian design more in the international spotlight. The finiix collection helps making this creative potential visible and showing what contribution furniture can already make for sustainable living. Sustainability and aesthetics are not a contradiction.
