The ambition of this design is to merge ancient Egyptian history with the futuristic fluid methodology of design. It is a literal translation of Egyptian most iconic religious tool into a fluid form of street furniture that borrows the characteristics of the flowing style where no specific shapes or design is advocated. The Eye represents both the male and female counterparts in the procreation of God Ra. The street furniture hence is presented in a sturdy design symbolizing masculinity and strength while its curvaceous looks portray femininity and gracefulness.

NI, the innovative combination of parasol and garden torch, is a brand new design embodying the adaptability of modern furniture.

Marching Ants is here to change the common perception of an "urban bench" by proposing an artistic approach of fluid forms, a study on continuity through modular approach. Repetition of one element allows for more complex set-ups, combinations of two or four units, named after "Marching Ants" and "Relaxing Ants" accordingly. Another basic aspect of the design process was to keep the existing infrastructure of the city untouched. "Just Drop & Forget" process was introduced to ensure a fast, clean and trouble-free installation.
