The familiar becomes unfamiliar. ALLEN KAUFMANN OBJECTS, liberated from the confines of the studio, inhabit a traditional Berlin apartment.

DADO Shelves, a DOVETAIL Side Table, a DOVETAIL Leaner, a IHCUGON Table, and an U-PROFILE Aluminum Ashtray find new context. Their forms and materials, designed with a specific architectural language, engage in dialogue with the apartment’s existing character.

This documentation project captures the interplay between object and environment, revealing the nuanced qualities that emerge when design encounters the everyday.
