While space is becoming increasingly expensive in cities, rural regions offer enough space for new design ideas. The many beautiful, undescribed places encourage dialogue with the landscape. Anyone who designs in the countryside is directly faced with the questions of real life: plants, animals, soil, paths, water, and weather; nature calls for clever concepts to consider themselves.

Together with the architecture practice Atelier Fanelsa and the visual artist Patrick Eicke, we developed furniture, landscape sketches, and food together in a workshop in the German countryside. In the participative process and in cooking and eating, we got to know each other and tested sustainable models of living and working in the countryside. During the week, I built furniture out of materials found on-site, cooked food with what we harvested ourselves, and had conversations about simplicity in life.
