Clarity Bike by Designaffairs GmbH


Clarity Bike by Designaffairs GmbH constructed with a plastic used in fighter jets canopies.Trivex is just one out of more than 2000 unique material samples (and over 5,000 various colors and finishes of these materials) that we have been collecting to provide a unique playground for manufacturers, designers and engineers alike.
Apart from client work and creative workshops we have used the lab as a source of inspiration for this designaffairs-studio project: Clarity Bike.
What sets our library apart from the other material libraries is the fact that all material and technologies presented are tailored to meet productions-processes needs. In addition to that, we have developed our own feature based material search engine, which allows our clients (manufacturers of products) not just to search and find but also to catalogue their own materials.

ADD System Furniture by Flötotto


Together with designer Werner Aisslinger, Flötotto have developed the modular ADD furniture system, which features an innovative joint design. The intelligent plastic node (patent pending) brings with it two major advantages: first it seamlessly connects the timber profiles to form a structural frame, hiding the joint within the node itself.

Second, it introduces a new and simple installation technique, in which the nodes feature fasteners that simply clip onto and off other elements such as front, side and back panels. Elements can easily be changed or added at any time. ADD is a system that can be modified and extended according to the user’s ideas and needs.

Kristallglasmanufaktur Theresienthal


Glassblowers, cutters, engravers, painters and other craftsmen have been working in Theresienthal since 1836. These craftsmen have accumulated the skill and experience that is essential for the making of exclusive crystal ware. Many of these craftsmen have worked in Theresienthal for decades and are sometimes the fourth or fifth generation of artisans. Theresienthal has always relied exclusively on its own craftsmen and every single item is hand-made. The process starts with the creation of a wooden mould. This is carried out by a master wood-turner. The liquid glass is blown into this mould to form the cup. A strand of moulten glass is then formed into the stem which is attached to the cup before the stem solidifies. Using a similar method, some glasses are further adorned with ornaments similarly made by hand. The glasses are then cut, engraved or painted, depending on the design and finally hand-polished. All these steps are done exclusively at our site in Bavaria, meaning that we have full control of the entire manufacturing process. This way we can guaranty the quality and timely delivery.
