RheinauArtOffice

 

Within the framework of the proposed urban-planning development of the Rheinauhafen area, schuett architects have designed an office building for Microsoft’s North-Rhine Westphalian office in cooperation with Freigeber Architekten. Essentially, the facade of the proposed building complex consists of two supporting, asymmetrical ‘belts’ which, shifted against each other, loop through the whole edifice, thus connecting two individual rhomboid building units in a sculptural way. To ensure a maximum of spatial efficiency, the external parts of the building, which are situated on a flood protection platform, were supplemented with a two-storied bridge construction.The open space under the bridge opens up a stage-like view of the docks. Generous glass surfaces make for a transparent and dynamic architecture, through which city and river alike remain perceptible. The distinctive shape of the building thus forms a prominent landmark at Cologne’s docks. schuett architects are interested in the ‘space in-between’, an unmarked state of the world. ‘One must violate it in order to begin in the first place,’ says philosopher Norbert Bolz. „In order to be able to observe the world, one must draw distinctions, differentiate, mould“.

Dancing dragons

 

The dragons of this outdoor fireplace give a beautiful, warm glow in your garden or terrace. The idea that dragons breathe fire arose during the middle ages. Falling stars were called dragons. The trace of a falling star was seen as a fire-spitting dragon. The dragons fireplace is interactive; fire asks attention en gives warmth and spectacle, the dragons add an extra dimension.

This fireplace is made of weathering steel, a group of steel alloys, which were developed to obviate the need for p rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather. So you will enjoy your dragon fireplace for a long time.

Kiosk m.poli

 

The kiosk is designed to be used for temporary street markets or handicraft fairs. It isn’t thought of as an individual object, but as part of a whole that builds up a small village, a little world of its own fitted into the city. The design is based on archetypical images: town, house, chimney… When closed, the kiosk is a volume covered by a double roof, a house in its uttermost minimal expression. The scale and the shape are so basic that at first glance it might even be a toy, a Monopoli house. When opened a transformation starts. A part of its façade rotates upon the roof and the kiosk acquires a more vertical and striking proportion: that of a house with an oversized chimney. The chimney works as a great advertising board and is back litten at night. With the transformation the kiosk reveals its inside, a house full of surprises, each one different and randomly colored. The outer skin is a naturally rusted steel plate decorated with punched floral motifs. In future series different skins such as wood or glass are possible without varying the main configuration. In December 2006 the city council of Madrid installed one hundred kiosks throughout three different handicraft markets. Authors: Brut Deluxe Ben Busche and Isabel Barbas, Architects

Beetle Bag

 

The Beetle Bag's color and form are inspired by a specific species of scarab beetle, identified by its shockingly beautiful combination of fresh lime green and muted pinks and purples. The bag emulates both the color adjacencies and achromatic surface qualities of the scarab. Using olive leather, the bag achieves a smooth transition between green and pink leather. Mimicking reflective qualities of the beetle's shell, smooth leather accomplishes a similar glossy effect. The bag's façade is segmented like the beetle's wings. Each wing is translated into an exterior front pocket, while wooden handles emulate the beetle's head.

Der Suppenvogel

 

“Der Suppenvogel” (the soupbird) is a small bird sitting at the edge of a soup bowl to strew sesame or herbs into the soup. By winding up the bird with a key it begins to strew while it is moving up and down. The bird keeps company while eating the soup and therefore brings more pleasure.
