Modern, colorful and original creations

Marshmallow

Marshmallow is a new generation soft foam bar stool that looks almost too perfect to sit on. It is available in two different sizes.

Each piece is unique because no mould is used to make this stool. The foam expands through the metal structure. Due to this natural expansion, it looks smooth and soft at the same time.

In yellow and pink, black, purple and white, chrome and light blue, or ivory and brown, the Marshmallow stool never goes unnoticed.

Crash Cabinet

The hypnotic beauty of destruction. Paul Ketz broke the Crash Cabinet with the impact of vehicles and large rocks into a single object. Because of the joyful violence, the boundaries between hard and soft fade away and the texture of the steel uses textiles.

Sunny Side Up

Sunny Side Up is an atypical reflective wall sculpture. A sculpture that stands out from all the others thanks to its fun and captivating aesthetics.
