Windstärke 5 for DCCD / Mohr Polster /Museum of Arts & Craft Hamburg

Combining Algorithms-Aided Design and traditional craftsmanship to create „Windstärke 5“, a unique daybed with a water surface.

The daybed has its form rooted in Mohr Polster’s specialism, as well as their tranquil living and working habitats in Andelsbuch, Bregenzerwald. A floating geometric structure with a liquid leather surface serves as the piece’s main focus, this simultaneously references Bregenzerwald’s natural landscape but is also a stage that showcases Mohr’s innovative adaptation of technology in craft, only made possible by their experience and expertise.
The design places emphasis on continuous emotional balance. By transforming a liquid surface into a piece of flowing upholstery, the unique daybed works against the urge of self–optimization and induces a sense of diving into and embracing one’s own vulnerability.
