[ poíēsis ]

Poesis comes from ancient Greek. The etymological origin is poíēsis, meaning “to make”.

Philosopher Martin Heidegger refers to poieses as a ‘bringing-forth’ (emergence) and uses the term in its widest sense. He explained poiesis as the blooming of the blossom, the coming-out of a butterfly from a cocoon, the plummeting of a waterfall when the snow begins to melt. All examples of a living relationship between the phenomena and its causality in being.

We are deeply inspired by this philosophical thinking and strive towards a poetic design practice that supports an ecological world-making. Through a series of in-house experiments, we build design objects that explore the quality of a living and causal relation between human and nature.

We believe that every design radiate agency into its environment, and it has become more important than ever to build objects that stimulate an ecological mindset and shape everyday decisions holding the power to fundamentally reshape our world.
