Transitional fossils are evolutionary biological organisms featuring characteristics of two groups of living beings. However, they are not straightly related to these two groups, they could even be close relatives. Therefore, transitional fossils are also titled intermediate form or transitional form. Thus, they are organisms which unite characters of phylogenetic older and phylogenetic younger biological groups.

Revolutionizing a Spatial Concept Ever since the late 19th century – in other words ever since private bathrooms have existed – washbasins have tended to be wall-mounted or positioned next to a wall. Now the washbasin can be moved to the centre of the bathroom. In this respect, the KANERA 1 D double washbasin presents a revolutionary spatial concept: for the first time, a double washbasin has been designed as a standalone installation within the bathroom. It not only offers the shared experience of the poetry of water, but also enables completely new room layouts.

Looking at the Bibliolounge from an evolutionary creative point of view, it is caught between the principles of an orthogonal and a free form vocabulary. Within the object, the creative hubris leads the user to a surprising and sensible experience.

The volumetric body consists of stained multiplex boards that are fixed to the mitre joint. The seating surface of the volume is milled into the wood following the body shape of the client. This creates an ergonomic topography of the seat area and is emphasized by the layers of multiplex boards and becomes clearly readable. For preserving the surface, eight layers of transparent painting are applied.
