Though their work spans a variety of scales and functions—including outdoor monuments, indoor installations, video works, furniture, and a set for the band Yeasayer, their work is united by a common motif: a modular, crystalline form. “For us, design is about putting in place a process from which you can guarantee surprises,” Lasch once said, while Aranda notes, “Our understanding of modularity is something that’s not quite obvious or fixed, something that can be a tool for finding infinite variation.”
