1977: Making the impossible possible.
In a second-hand VW Bulli van, Rolf and Helena Brunner set out to complete an order for a customer that their former employers had declared “impossible”. At the same time, they decided to found their own company. Today, more than 40 years later, the principle remains the same: our next innovation could be anything – just not impossible.

I love their A-Chair by Jehs and Laub
Ou Bien by Wendy Andreu
I made this armchair during my studies of metal craftsmanship in Ecole Boulle, Paris. This armchair owns four seats. The structure can be turned to reach the next seat. The concept behind this project was to give two aspects of CHOICE: being able to choose your seat but getting always the same! It is about illusion of possibility and real possibility. But actually, all the seats are different from each others: the leather crosses own different patterns. This difference is very subtle and cannot be seen at first glance.

Richard Riemerschmid (20 June 1868 – 13 April 1957) was a German architect, painter, designer and city planner from Munich. He was a major figure in Jugendstil, the German form of Art Nouveau, and a founder of architecture in the style. A founder member of both the Vereinigte Werkstätte für Kunst im Handwerk (United Workshops for Art in Handcrafts) and the Deutscher Werkbund and the director of art and design institutions in Munich and Cologne, he prized craftsmanship but also pioneered machine production of artistically designed objects.
