(among other things) is a conceptual design and art studio based on restlessness, curiosity and a strive for relevance within the things we surround ourselves with. We take part in the creation of these things, but we intend for them to be more than temporary supernumeraries in our life. We make things that do not hide within their own utilitarianism. Things that challenge our perception of the things themselves. Equally fascinated and frustrated by the history of making and producing, we seek to learn, unlearn, rethink and fuck up the ways of doing. The crafts, the machines, the technologies, the industrialisation. Incredibly many good things have come from this development but also a more streamlined way of thinking aesthetics — and a more distanced way of making. A distance that often is passed on to things themselves. Our dependence on these machines and technologies exercise a power and limit on the shape of things. Aesthetics determine technique determine aesthetics.

In an attempt to challenge this default way of thinking things – yet still inspired by the technique and craftmanship within it — we intend to create things with a contemporary presence liberated from systemic constraints. Things made from curiosity, joy, restlessness, experimentation, independence and relevance. Things that seek inspiration from the age-old crafts as well as the industrialization and channels this knowledge into being made with our own hands (with the help of the Gods that are DIY-makers on YouTube). Because the last thing we do must not be the only thing we did.
