New research activities with BAU KUNST ERFINDEN evolve the potentials of sliced and spliced willow branches to be used as wooden textile yarn. The immense flexibility of particular willow breeds combined with their specific natural light-weight structure might offer to use willow "yarn" for industrially produced eco-friendly light-weight structures (membrans and shells).

Within an ongoing project with BAU KUNST ERFINDEN I examine the possibilities of positive effects like reducing weight and material input, resilience and aesthetics of wooden textiles made of veneer strips. Based on stress lines within the component the dimensions of the strips and their textile composition is created. Parallel to the prototypes the BAU KUNST ERFINDEN engeneering team is constructing a CNC-loom which can weave and wattle wood strips automatically.

Salix Regionalis 3D - reseach project
In 2014 I began a research project with BAU KUNST ERFINDEN about the optimization of shaped plywood by using highly flexible and light willowbranches - a traditional material for basketry. To compose the normally solid wooden surface out of single elements - the branches or strips - leads to several possibilities to work much more differentiated on plywood than with veneer. The surface becomes a wooden textile and is lighter, more flexible, more bendable (4 times more than beech plywood) and shows a new aesthetic for wooden surfaces. More

Die Kolumne ist für dich, Steffi:
http://www.oderbruchpavillon.de/kolumnen.html
Herzlich, Kenneth

Kenneth Anders, einer der Leiter des Oderbruchpavillons, und ich kennen uns seit 2009. Er wohnt im Oderbruch in Brandenburg. Seit 2009 schreiben wir uns immer wieder lange eMails, um über die Sache mit dem Design für und in Regionen nachzudenken. In dieser Kolumne geht es um Wert, Geld und Korbflecher (Thea Müller in Buschdorf). Danke für diese Kolumne und deinen immer kritischen Blick!

Design Slam Berlin
Alte Teppichfabrik Berlin . 16. Juli 2014
Zusammen mit meinem Designerfreund Sven Funcke sind wir zum 1. Design Slam Berlin eingeladen. Wir lösten drei lustige grafische Aufgaben innerhalb von je 10 Minuten und hatten aber gegen den jungen Tito keine Chance, der verdientermaßen das Jahresabo für die FORM gewann. Herzlichen Glückwunsch Tito! Und dem Studio Linie8 viel Erfolg bei allen folgenden Design Slams in Berlin!

"Local Resources - New Materials"
Stipendium der Universität Kassel
Oman . Dezember 2013

Ich reise in das Sultanat Oman, um die Wüste "Wahiba Sands" zu besuchen, Kontakte zu knüpfen und den Sand zu untersuchen. Dieser Wüstensand ist zu glatt, zu rund, zu schön, um ihn in Beton zu verarbeiten. Die Masse hält nicht. Aber was kann man sonst daraus machen, in einem Land mit unglaublich viel Sonnenenergie? Ergebnisse dieser Reise kommen später...

Here comes a video that I made of Double Road in Bangalore. I used to drink a coconut there very often and have my daily one-of-the-best-coffees-in-the-world-coffee in the early morning with Shiva, Ricardo and Margie. Thanks to you!
