Swiss designer Nicola Enrico Stäubli explores a new form of customization: Since the knowledge of the consumer needs will always be limited, he designs with a focus on the greatest possible flexibility. In today’s world of the open source concept, consumers take on the role of co-designers. Nicola’s designs have an openness allowing the hybrid customer the most versatile usage. Beyond a reference to the 2.0 economy, a similar product typology pairs with the requirements of a sustainable design – it’s adaptable to a changing living environment thus providing long lifespan.
