Matthias used Gault & Millau’s “Ten Commandments of Nouvelle Cuisine” as the foundation of his ethos for this project:
Every material stimulates the senses.
The material must be identifiable in the object with its sensory components.
There is always a better material.
All materials can be combined with each other.
Natural or artificial – we don’t care!
Ask the material what it wants to be!
There is no right and wrong – Just do it!
Every production process transforms the character of the material.
The starting point for an object is the material – NOT the other way round!
The cost of the material does not reflect the value of the material.
