Form Follows Meaning

 

There are many beautiful, ergonomic and even ‘sustainable’ projects nowadays to choose from, do we really need more? Do we need more buildings, objects or things in general? Whether we need them or not they continue to be made, that is why we believe that all these projects should have something that goes beyond the obvious, creating awareness for the specific and wider public. We believe that it is important to make people conscious of their actions and the world that we live in or in other words to make people think. Paraphrasing the famous modernist quote, we place emphasis to the one thing that should be present in the present, without of course forgetting everything else: meaning.
