Typecube is a design tool used to facilitate the modular construction of letterforms. Typecube’s six faces each bear a unique formal component which provide the basis of two dimensional and three dimensional typographic systems, encouraging flexibility within uniform structure. By varying the number of type cubes, typographic solutions vary in complexity, and are capable of infinite rearrangement.

A seating collection launched by Moroso during the Milan Furniture Fair, which draws inspiration from a miniature painting from “The Garden of Life” by Naveen Patnaik. The book is beautifully illustrated and a practical guide for the use of plants in a range of applications – sacred, medicinal, culinary, cosmetic and aromatic. The found illustration provided style cues and ideas to the duo which eventually led to the new series of seating.

Mesa evolved from an architectural experiment which was to do with creating connections. Elastika was an installation created in the Moore Building in 2005 for the Miami Design Fair. The brief had been a sculptural structure to revivify the 1921 building’s atrium. Zaha Hadid’s proposal was an organic set of tentacles which linked spaces and floors across the atrium, defying changing levels and criss-crossing each other in mid-air. The effect was like a huge, sticky chewing gum pulled out of shape across the interior. This concept is now illustrated as a Vitra Edition table.
