Another collection from Dresden is here. This time about ordinary and humble objects.

The famous architect Le Corbusier claimed that there are some products that in their forms and functions come so far, that there is not necessary to have any improvement on them. With a similar idea we have selected the following industrial or crafted products whose simple forms are timeless anytime.
