The Seul-born Hannover-based industrial designer Patrick Frey has recently completed his first architectural project, a prefabricated single-storey summerhouse located on the outskirts of Berlin. The well-proportioned, light-filled house can be easily adapted into a holiday or weekend house, a study or even a house for year-round use. Frey, who established his studio in 2007 has collaborated on this project with the architect Björn Götte.

'Unit E&S' by Robert Wettstein

Here is what Robert Wettstein explains:

“The piece is made from a transportation box which once contained a valuable piece of design. After carrying the product well-protected to the client the box fulfilled its requirements and is not needed anymore. Usually! I give it a new function. Refined by a transparent coating applied by a specialist the box turns into a useful piece of furniture. The irony lies in the playful handling of branding and editions since every box is signed by me.”
