„The shine under the stone – The stone under the shine“. Nowadays design is more illusion than reality. We live in a period of time where we design and redesign products nobody really needs. „Schatten im Licht“ is an installation we did for KUKUK at the Degree Show in Pforzheim, that wants to reflect this problem.

The white painted chairs symbolize innocent. neutral and useful products. But nowadays designers tend to make products that make no sense. Products that are overstyled and expensive in production. Products that people „must have“ – that’s what they get told from media and society. The film we projected on the chairs symbolizes this illusion of design. We call it the mask that the film casts as a shadow on the wall.
