nat-2™ is not only a brand but also an art project.

we are not striving for sales in every object we create. we take the freedom to experiment, do research, develop and dream. simply out of passion and the need to open our minds and learn.

below you find some examples of our art, which has already been shown in international renown galleries and museums.
