Friederike Deilius of Studio Berg, a recent graduate of the Berlin University of the Arts, is our kind of designer; interested in transforming the look and feel of everyday utilitarian household items. Case in point: her senior project, Foldwork, a brass folding drying rack. It’s a prototype, but we hope it goes into production soon.

Above: “The initial idea was to transform disregarded functional products in our households and give them their own personality in order to get them out of the utility rooms into the central living areas,” Friederike says.
