For over 15 years the multidisciplinary studio of Axel Nieberg has worked on a diverse array of projects across various fields including architecture, interior design, landscaping, lighting design and product design. Well known for a minimalistic use of form and an extraordinary way of directing light in combination with natural materials, the expressivity of his work is a result of the haptic quality of the chosen materials. In terms of the Japanese Wabi-sabi doctrine, great value is put upon simplicity and the natural aging process of the materials, which is increased by the development of a patina. Architectural Nuances examines his architectural output, buildings which create a unique impression through their unconventional presence, characterized by massiveness combined with well-defined openings and interesting lines of sight.
