Furniture Design

Release: 2010


The antipodes, grecian »anti-opposed foot«, is the term for people living on the other side of the Earth's surface (the point on the Earth's surface which is diametrically opposite to it).


Inspired by the ancient assumption, that it could rain upside down on the other side of the globe, I developed furniture in collaboration with Jonathan Logan, Guy and Ruben in Katrin Sonnleitner's workshop, corresponding to our imagination of the antipodes: People who are sitting on their heads. The piece deals with the paradoxes of an antipode part of the world. Afterwards, our antipodes-chair was exhibited at Unitec Auckland – New Zealand – as a part of the workshop.
