About the collection

Technologies and new inventions are increasingly incorporated into our everyday life, and with all the benefits and improvements they bring, they also have an impact on our mental health: We are technologically more and more advanced, but we are still vulnerable humans on the inside — and humans have always found protection and retreat in nature.

Recycling camping equipment and army supplies as well as using modern materials and digital prints, AWE merges both worlds together. A clash between technology and the human mind, a reminder to spend more time outdoors, a strong belief in nature’s power helping us to heal and to stay close to reality.
