tagwerk - A Reinterpretation of traditional craft

With Tagwerk, I complete my studies by exploring traditional craftmanship and, consequently, reviving it in products carrying a fresh and modern approach to design. Some techniques have been delivered from generation to generation for hundreds of years but nowadays are more than likely to disappear due to automation in all parts of our lives. A chip box manufacturer, a basket maker, a mason, a blueprinter, a candle dipper and a handloom weaver, all of them trained me accurately in their traditional craft. For my bachelor thesis, I sewed and printed unpretentious yet attractive cotton bags. Moreover, chip boxes got a new, inventive facelift and from now on, depending on their size and shape, serve as either containers for various odds and ends or side tabels. Tagwerk conceptualizes freshly designed, useful and timeless items for everyday life
