The theme of transformation of the architecture is now translated and applied to this field of working: existing furniture is being transformed and given new functionality, aesthetics quality and lifespan.
What the transformation in essence comes down to is, like in architecture, the creating of a symbiosis between existing and newly added elements, parts and materials.

I discovered the amazing furniture of Studio Rolf while reviewing the Black Pearl house yesterday. After creating their architecture firm in 2003 (Zecc Architects) their assignments got bigger and although also projects for newly built houses and buildings were developed and realized, the emphasis remained on the reconstruction and transformation of existing ones such as a water-tower, churches and schools. Beginning of 2009 Studio Rolf.fr was founded to be able to focus entirely on the designing of furniture and products.
