The kind of precise research that results in the obviousness of the lines obtained; a symbiosis of contemporary lifestyle and collective memory. Michael Bihain is one of Europe's most creative designers. He is also the designer that won't terminate the creative process. Instead, he seeks to hand it over the to the users. The objects are meant to work as solitudes - or  by repetition create a new unity. Bihain hands over the relay baton - for example the awarded, unforgettable, ladder looking bookshelf Libri for Swedese.
