Late 2006 he was one of the founding members of OKAY studio.Mathias is attracted by the material integrity and longevity of everyday objects – in opposition to fast, ephemeral product consumption. His recent work explores traditional technologies and materials, while introducing basic mechanical principles and applications.Transforming these into simple but useful objects he takes a twisted angle at familiar object categories, in order to find new fields of application.

An essential sourcebook

Tools for Living is a book all about ‘ultimates’ – the ultimate things designed for the home – from chef knives and pots and pans, to door handles and bathroom taps, to home-office furniture and garden tools. Well-designed objects not only have superior performance but also look better and last longer, which ultimately means that they are more sustainable and provide better value for money. They also give the user a satisfying sense of reliability – they are the household tools that we use on a daily basis, which enhance life.
