'Close to be open' by Agnes Ögren and Valerie Otte

The Berlin and Zurich based designers Valerie Otte and Agnes Ögren cultivate something you could call a long distance studio. Collaborating via Skype and e-mail the two managed to develop their ideas and realise a hormonic series of furniture, which they presented at this year’s Greenhouse during the Stockholm Furniture Fair for the first time.

'Close to be open' by Agnes Ögren and Valerie Otte

“The project explores both the mechanical-physical and the metaphysical aspects of opening and closing and of open and closed states. Both designers are fascinated by products which refer in some way to this and other grey zones of transition.”
