BA Thesis 


Upon which principles of design should we orient ourselves today? Already, during the flourishing of Bauhaus such principles as “form follows function” or “less is more” had been formulated. On the other hand, must form actually be subordinated to function? As an „Axiom“ form, which is related to the idea of bodily motion is placed in the foreground. Thus, function follows form, which in turn follows natural forms – that is, “function follows form – follows nature”. During the design process “Frozen” bodily movements captured photographically are transported to objects. Thus, craft and digital fabrication go hand in hand. In the present work, the stools which have been designed and constructed are intended to show clearly the relationship between man and object and moreover should reclaim its relationship to the body in that they can also be worn as jewelry. The boundaries between jewelry and object are therefore blurred through this process. In addition, different tactile possibilities of perception also occur. Thus the objects should be experienced and, above all, should be touched.
