Presented during milan design week 2012, 'altdeutsche möbel' is composed of solid pine wood works which are stained in white become blank canvases for an intricate hand-finished study of man's double nature. 'On the one hand the worker bee who needs the aid of tools and machines to produce efficiently, on the other hand, the philosopher, who constantly searches for meaning inside himself and in the world around him. Machines, nature philosophy, life and death converge in a network of symbolic images creating a tightly knot pattern that reproduces the colorful, chaotic and mysterious nature of life.'
