Atelier Tobias Juretzek
The workshop is an experimental playground which includes a laboratory, open spaces and lots of personality. It 'was created to reflect and respond to contemporary problems.
The answers are drawn on it are mainly related to design. The workshop is a tool to generate visions and translate them into reality.
Like a painting in constant maturity, the first rough sketch to completion, the process of designing various elements channeled towards a final point. In the beginning there is only a thought, an idea which perhaps follows a sort of draft and a lot of personal emotions.
From this starting point it then builds a general framework, a first direction and perhaps a less radical, perhaps even utopian. With the accompaniment of frequently asked questions and doubts recurring gains strength plausible picture of the idea. The construction takes place in a sort of playground, where everything and anything is possible. To me this is the place where ideas become reality.
The experiences are for me the reward of life. I do not want a person to be static. My goal is to move forward, or backward, to acquire knowledge. I want to develop and be an active part of the environment that surrounds me. In short, what drives me is curiosity.
The people and the designers themselves are at the heart of the design. In particular, everything that touches us has, to my eyes, a great potential in terms of design. Often it is daring the soul that is in us that drives us, encouraging us to break down common rules, is the rebel in our minds that we do not let up.
In everyday life we are offered gifts consist of little things, like breaking the rules of etiquette, to contact their own neighbors in a very friendly and personal, travel at speed on a basket of shopping in a supermarket or offer a meal to a homeless . The design should awaken in us a feeling of joy and satisfaction, perhaps even just to bring out the rebel in us.
The design should move away from all that is conventional and offer the viewer a moment of astonishment.
