Steingeflüster / Decoration, lucky charm


One advantage of the Rapid Manufacturing process which has not been used so far, is the production of new forms without additional work.
No stone is like the other. In this conception, the client discovers, like in real nature, new stone forms on a website. Afterwards, these are interfused by a word which is also defined by the user of this website.
By putting the stones or words, chosen by the user, next to each other, whole sentences are formed which is described as the stone whispering.
An answer to the need for individualism and naturalness of today's society
