The UNGUIDED ASSIDEO has its origin in Oberdorf, a small village in upstate Basel, where young furniture designer Oliver Rudin has his workshop. The asymmetrical base made from steel wire topped by a simple round wooden seat can be used either as a stool, a coffee table or a nightstand. For the UNGUIDED EDITION, the wooden seats were given to visual artists to create unique and individual items. The artists had complete creative freedom.

Born in Luxembourg, Sarah Majerus lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Her work reflects the multitude of points of view that surrounds us, especially in the cities. The recurring theme of her research is perception, which is not one, but plural; individual, and changing. It multiplies and divides itself; it breaks and
builds. Since graduating from L'École de la Cambre in Brussels, earning a Masters Degree in Visual Arts – Painting, Sarah has partaken in numerous exhibitions and residencies.
