Uion by Da ZengExplore and create a kind of Oriental style using the universal language of design: The appearance revolves around the shape structure of the letter "U" and suggests the shape of traditional Oriental armchairs, highlighting a sense of rhythm between straight lines and curves. In terms of material technology, the rattan of different thicknesses is made with a hot bending process, and all the unnecessary structural parts of the seat are removed, so that the use of materials is minimised, showcasing a simple and quiet, natural beauty.

OMIT by Hiroyuki MoritaOMIT is a non-electric vacuum cleaner that works by small action. It does not have the same power as a conventional vacuum cleaner but works silently and is handy. It can be used at any time of the day and in any place without electricity. The idea was inspired by my own daily life. Living with flatmates, I usually cannot use the vacuum cleaner on weekdays because of the noise. With OMIT, life can be less noisy and handier by omitting electricity.

Udon Stool by Anton MikkonenThe Udon Stool is made of solid ash wood and has unique aesthetics acquired with a 2D CNC machine. The clever use of the router bit enables the distinctive shape of both the seat and the legs. The stool is constructed from a total of five pieces, which are cut out with a CNC machine, resulting in a highly efficient manufacturing process. The stool aims to create a sense of playfulness using traditional materials and modern manufacturing techniques.

CURTAIN by Wing Yin NgA modular space divider design based on the exploration of curves and structures. The shape was inspired by and expresses the energetic flow of sea waves, which is natural and boundless. This is done by connecting the arches in different directions to create a wavy frame that looks like a curtain. The structure allows unlimited extension lengths and changes of direction. CURTAIN, the distorted frame makes it possible to look at space from a different perspective.

Triplex Stool by Whitnie Yvette Lau and Dennis CheungTriplex is an experimental item of furniture that pushes the physical limits of a stool, from structure, weight and dimensions to assembly, delivery and after-life. It is unprecedented in the industry. The module is made of flax fibre, one of the strongest natural cellulose materials. Designed with a strategically curved geometry, the less than 3mm thick stool stands elegantly on its arches and embraces the weight it carries.

braided weave by Sofie LeenenHandmade, braided, woven carpet that can transform into a basket: This project started as an investigation of the similarities between textile weaving and basket braiding. The constructions of the techniques differ greatly, and each technique has its own characteristics of complexity and identity. The carpet has a flat surface with a circular contour. A rope is pulled through the loops at the ends. When the rope is pulled, the contour of the circle comes together as a 3-dimensional shape.

Tenok by Tim KrahmerAn open source vacuum cleaner that you can build yourself: More than half of all vacuum cleaners are functional when they are thrown away. A waste? Absolutely – but also an opportunity to make something useful again from what appears to be rubbish! By means of a 3D-printed adapter, Tenok can be equipped with used vacuum cleaner parts from nearly all manufacturers. The detailed online construction manual is designed to encourage even people without technical expertise to make one.
