Michael Schoner develops 3D and 2D designs in different scales varying from architecture and interior to furniture and set design. He is searching for simple forms and giving an object identity through simple design operations. He is fascinated with construction, geometry, space, mass and voids and twisting perception or creating double or multiple meanings. Some of his designs are made for social interaction.
Crest & Trough is a crossover of different archetypes: a bench, a chest – and in terms of appearance – a trough.
Its storage unit is made from perforated corrugated steel that is resting in a pair of U-shaped legs. As a result those legs as well as the end caps have to follow the bend sinus wave of the container. A lid from folded steel serves as a seat. The furniture is a split up in extrusion elements and those perpendicular to them divides the volume into graphic surfaces.
