This work is an approach to embody the fascinating versatility of natural stone and reify it in different ways.

The idea of the project was to challenge the common use of natural stone and the common industrial processing methods of stone in an experimental way. Optical and haptic interferences created in a natural way and through machines, became the focus point and provided the challenges to create something at odds with stone- designs commonly available today. The project encompasses the aspect of haptic and optic communitcation as well as the tension between naturally developed and artificially created shape.

The potential uses of the objects remain open in any case – as they are product designs, their material aesthetics and conception stand for themselves. Equally tangible and abstract they leave space for interpretation, for the individual approach of the viewer towards the particular object.
