The new Collection „Depicted Signs“ is characterized through the interaction of minimalism and decorative elements. The source of inspiration for the collection is the unique ornamental paintings on the mud-houses of the African tribe “Cassena“. The handpainted patterns consist of repetitions and sequences of self-developed symbols. Every sign has a meaning and depicts a part of the tribe’s everyday life. Transferring these impressions into our present life, the question arose: What would our symbols look like, how would we describe our life?
