Philipp Schenk-Mischke and Milo McCloughlin-Greening have collaborated with master windowmaker Claus Schwarzmann on a table and seating arrangement which seeks to reintroduce experimentation and play into craft and work. To quote Bauhaus colour theorist Johannes Itten: “play becomes joy, joy becomes work, work becomes play”. The tabletop features a unique colour feature developed by the two designers that sits between two panes of glass, and which will change over time. By reintroducing fun to processes of design, production and usage, the set offers a potential antidote to industrial production; Schenke-Mischk and McCloughlin-Greening sought to highlight not only Schwarzmann’s skill as a windowmaker, but his joy and love for his craft. For these designers, craft needs a human, personal element, as well as attention to detail. By paying attention to the details, you can see how this ethos has been carried through this collaboration.
