Cool Shelter


In Southern China, terracotta water jars were placed around the house to generate coolness. Terracotta absorbs water like a sponge and passes cool air on to its surroundings. This simple function has become the basic principle behind Cool Shelter, a three layer wall that creates coolness.

Hotaru Lamp

The design of the Hotaru lamp is inspired by a traditional Japanese hand-carving technique translated into CNC-milling. The lamp is made of toukousai (translucent porcelain) in three different thicknesses that create various shades of light. By switching on the light, the lamp turns into a sky with fireflies.
