Shop design. Six conical chunks called bolides are rearranged every day to catch the eye of people passing by. The bolides serve as pedestals and display areas for small objects and foulards. The sales counter is a mighty treasure chest that presents its precious contents on swivel trays and shallow drawers. A large illuminated wall surface creates a striking back light at night.

dock: currently comprises 250 documentations of artists from the Basel area and thus offers a well-founded overview of the region’s art production. We were looking for a characteristic piece of furniture that could be transported and set up in public locations with a lot of visitors, such as the foyer of the Kunstmuseum Basel or ART Basel. ->

Containers and the goods they carry come from all over the world, and they are headed for all kinds of destinations – just like artists’ careers. By opening the containers right at the transfer site, curious passers-by are allowed a glimpse of what’s inside. The scaffolding signals reconstruction. It tells us that something is going on here. It’s the opposite of dust and decay.

It is one of my skills to find entrepreneurs willing to search for innovative and unconventional solutions at a fair price. I was able to convince MAB Amsler, a specialist in facade construction, to manufacture the infill work on the containers. The metal construction was carried out by Kornel Vogt Metallbau from Basel.

Back to overview

Some projects are suitable for reproduction. Building on the experience of deveolping the prototypes, the product is refined and production is simplified. Sometimes, even industrial production is possible.

Do you want to place an order?

Some private projects prove ideal even in larger numbers and are ordered for offices, surgeries or holiday homes.

Are you interested in a quote?

Three pieces by kunotechnik have been incorporated into the design collection of the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich. I am honoured that my design legacy is well cared for and accessible to the public.

At the moment I’m interested in pre-industrial woodwork: conical table legs, spars that are finer at the top, funnel-shaped constructions, and, of course, my boat projects.
