The coral suspension lamp is a lighting sculpture edition by studio aisslinger created in 2009. The coral lamps are formed by a multiplication of solidified felt hexagonal submodules. Through its amorphous geodetic round shape, the coral lamp and seating modules remind us of sea life coral structures.
sizes: diameter 65 - 75 cm
CORAL seating modules
design by werner aisslinger
In the age of collage-living scenarios the coral modules are a transparent and open kind of geodetic structure with a strong sculptural appearance. Influenced by the shapes of microorganisms of marine life, the overall shape of the CORAL is created by a multiplication of submodules. The edition is created by studio aisslinger and launched in 2009. The CORAL is built in various shapes and formed by an addition of hexagonal funnels. The individual units are hybrids of felt and polycarbonate, allowing a comfortable and elastic self supporting structure.
material: felt & polycarbon sandwich-modules in various colour combinations
sizes: diameter from 80 to 130 cm height 40 - 46 cm
produced by L’abbate, Italy

The A-chair is a tubular cantilever chair with a filigree appearance. In an architectural space the A-chair is hovering with a maximum of constructive transparency and lightness. The A-chair enhances virtually any environment. Its linear shape comes from the use of an endless loop of a 25 mm tube. The transparency of the seat and backrest is created by a grid of metal rods. The A-chair product family has the following versions: standard chair, bar-stool and a low easy chair.
material: steel frame and steel rods chair construction
available with replaceable full cover cushion
colours: black , yellow or white coating

The MESH vases are an innovative textured glass vase edition developed with CIAV Meisenthal, an experimental laboratory for blown glass in France. For the MESH vases, a new fabrication concept was developed with CIAV: the glass is blown into a glass fiber textile bag fixed in a iron rack. This process turns each vase into a different sculpture.
material: hand blown glass with textile mesh print inside silver-coated
colours: orange, dark green, grey, red
size: 36 and 44 cm height
