HEWI: Compared to HEWI, etage8 is a relatively young deign office. What sets etage8 apart? Does it have its own design principles?
etage8: We stand for proven integrated designs with a high level of commitment to the field of universal design. Specifications and requirements given to us by the client for the design process are never restrictive or obstructing for us. Instead, this is an opportunity and challenge for us. We believe design to be infinite - each new task allows us to become specialists in a further field. Complete submersion in a task - as freely as possible - it our credo. We take a critical look at the product and, from this distance, we come up with something new.
HEWI: A furniture handle is a relatively unspectacular product. What options are there for creative design?
