As a mother I’ve become sensitive to sharp edges and corners in the height of my child’s head, and like many other adults, I’ve developped a reflex to cover them with my hands to avert accidents. I decided to translate these little acts of care into table accessories. The many stages of this project have seen a series of sketches, two archive tables showcasing existing corner protections and two desks produced for the exhibition “Projekt Berggasse 19” in collaboration with cabinetmaker Clemens Schmidberger, which feature hands in brass and in silver.
