In Frankfurt am Main, we visited three ateliers of three artists and designers. First of them we present here workshop of Kai Linke, young explorer of the new angles of the product design.
Kai stands behind several very interesting furniture projects based on exploring new possibilities in construction, materials and concepts of design itself.
His Blasted series includes wooden pieces with the special relief decorations. Roots project incorporates live nature into the design process. Linke planted plants into the pots in the shape of chair. "Roots of plants have been directed to fill out a form on different nutrient mediums over a period of time. After filling out the form completely, similar to a flower in a too small pot, it is then removed and a root shaped like a table or a chair is left", he says.
All these experiments he does in his atelier shared with his friends artists.
