Elisa Piazzi and Julia Holmgren from the Master Interior Architecture, Job Oort and Erco Lai from the Master Industrial Design challenge the norms of the disciplines in which they graduated and show a diversity of approaches and interests.

UN-ADH&M-T-HR (Universal Non-Authoritarian Declaration of Human and More-Than-Human Rights)

With UN-ADH&M-T-HR based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Elisa Piazzi wants to eradicate the concept of otherness and recognise the inherent dignity and equality of all beings. Facilitating discussions between Everyone and Everything, Elisa is currently repeatedly re-translating these Rights

Claiming Anonymous Spaces

Having moved 29 times herself, Julia Holmgren has developed an interest in personal fragments that contribute to one’s identity. Julia is claiming anonymous spaces, focusing on how to feel at home. How to live in the shadow of someone else’s previous interior choices which left traces in the space?

Neo Stone age — domesticating limestone

Calcium carbonate is a common material widely spread on Earth and it has various applications in our life. Erco Lai attempts to reintroduce "limescale", as a promising material to build and live with, by researching how to reconfigure limescale and focus on creating "geopolymers" with a chemical process. Based on the material research, Erco speculates what a "neo stone age" would look like, and how this harvesting and production method could be integrated into the city, and change both our interiors and exteriors.
