Nicola Enrico Stäubli, alias Nicola from Bern, 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.

The designer about his work: “My projects represent an approach to design which has more to do with mathematics than with a personal and inward looking composition. I am always in search of the primary source of design – the initial point. It is by far the most important step because each and every decision in the design process is based on it. You end up with a physical manifestation of this idea which is to be judged not after the concept of beauty but as the logical result after a series of consistent decisions in the designing process.”

'Rearranged' by Nicola from Bern, photo by Michael Sieber

Our friend Nicola from Bern just sent us these beautiful photographs of his newest work ‘Rearranged’. The series of chairs is composed of the classic shell of the Charles and Ray Eames Plastic Chair Series and a new base made from powder-coated sheet metal. With his convincing half ready-mades the young Swiss designer wants to question the fast-paced production and developments of todays design industry.

Don’t miss to read Nicola’s intresting background story:

“Rearranged tries to demonstrate the potential of an alternative mentality to the established design industry in order to encourage them to alter the traditional perspective of product development already today. Why launching products with identical performance on an annual basis when there are well-known designs within the same enterprise? Many design classics were designed with the highest degree of flexibility and adaptability in mind, but their huge success and the resulting request for preservation made it difficult for the companies to do other than establishing an untouchable status.
With Charles and Ray Eames’ Plastic Chair Series I not only attempt to proof the feasibility but to highlight ecological and economical benefits of Rearranged as well. As an intermediate setup, the existing infrastructure can be maintained while adding just fractional diversification.”

This modular storage system consists of an optional number of identical metal boxes. It was created by the Swiss designer Nicola from Bern. The storage space for shoes can be reduced with a wedge-shaped array. The accordingly designed boxes can be arranged as a stack or a quadrant. It never gets undersized – just add another unit for your new pair of shoes.
