c--c profile elements: embossed and oxidized copper + insulation
An invitation to play with material, surface structure and transparency.
c--c is a prototype for a new type of Channel Glass. It was presented atDETAIL research lab, in Munich (01/2015) well as on Glasstec 2014 in Düsseldorf (10/2014). For compact printable information please down-load this PDF in both German and English. What does c--c mean and how to pronounce this expression?I won’t be much of a help here, I’m afraid. These four characters happen to retrace the outer contour of the profile, that’s about all there’s to it.Where to purchase c--c?c--c profiles are not in production yet. Holger Jahns started his career as a craftsman: after his education in metal construction he trained as a cabinet maker. He then studied Interior Design in Amsterdam and finally graduated from a master class for carpentry and Interior Design in Graz, Austria. The practical approach has remained characteristic of his work as a designer – until today, Holger Jahns sees his work as the comprehensive analysis of both material and engineering processes. Any result will be approved only when performing well on site, in hands of construction workers. Looking at the material glass, Holger Jahns was amazed by the apparent lack of smart prefabricated items for specific solutions – in comparison to other construction materials and with glass being such an environmentally friendly material. To take the peculiarity of this material as an incentive stands at the core of this design research.Besides the work at his studio, Holger Jahns has taught for several years at Universität der Künste, Berlin and Free University of Bolzano, Italy.Holger Jahns ProduktentwicklungMuskauer Straße 2710997 Berlinwww.konflux.net | email@example.comLegal notice: c--c is patent pending, Holger Jahns holds copyright for all graphics, unless indicated otherwisely.
