The Design group For Use was formed trough the collaboration of Sven Jonke, Christopher Katzler, and Nikola Radeljkovic, based in Zagreb and Vienna. For Use stands mainly for product design. They work for companies like Moroso, Element or Zanotta. But under the name Numen they are also realizing interior concepts and set designs. Here is an example of a set design which was executed as an installation at the gallery of Croation Designer’s Society in Zagreb in May this year.
Cardboard tubes acquired from waste of carpet dealers were fixed at the floor and the ceiling. The tape was first randomly wrapped around the columns, forming the cords of the future spatial structure. From the subsequent multiple wrapping of tape over tape the complex organic surface of the installation emerged. Even though various geometrical systems of addition of the tape were tested during the building of the installation, the resulting shapes were always mutually similar, as if the forms with chaotic, organic growth have the same, ungraspable inner order as natural beings.
