ministry of mass is a collective of makers founded in 2012 by david braeckman and sander michiels. the designers create objects that aim to fulfill the ever changing needs of the modern house for a prolonged period of time.with the limited editions they aim to provide comments, criticism and reflection on our current practices as a producing and consuming culture.

some pieces are produced in their workshop which is equipped to produce prototypes and small series. for all the things they can’t do, the collective cooperates with local craftsmen and companies.

 

 

the pillow seat is designed to minimize parts and material. It exists out of only three pieces held together by one strap.
