Bern-based product designer and innovator Jonathan Hartmann-Pisoni, founder of Eckstein Design Company (EDC), has launched an exciting crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to launch one of the world’s first sustainable furniture concepts, “Einstein.”
“Einstein” is a customizable, scalable all-in-one furniture solution. “Einstein” consists of a base frame and 45 high-quality and scratch-resistant aluminum tiles. Using a click system, the individual tiles can be assembled, interchanged and personalized into endless configurations. The individual modules can be easily reconfigured and expanded into two- or three-story complete works of art. EDC’s furniture objects and concepts are patent pending in both Europe and the United States.
All elements are manufactured in such a way that individual parts can be replaced and repaired.
Inspired by his work and experience in the hospitality industry, Jonathan Hartmann-Pisoni’s “Einstein” is not only a sustainable furniture concept, but also a counter design to the rampant uniformity in interior design. The Eckstein Design Company is launching an infinitely customizable design system for furniture of all kinds that can be used in hotels, offices or private living spaces. With its products, EDC aims to arouse emotions, inspire, promote creativity and take sustainability into account. All components of the customizable furniture line are manufactured in the region of Bern, Switzerland.
Today, the project is at an advanced stage. The pilot series has already been produced. Jonathan Hartmann-Pisoni is now looking for supporters worldwide to finance the production of the first regular series and to ensure the continuous development of the “Einstein” line. Watch the demonstration and proof-of-concept video on the Kickstarter campaign page.
