Sadar+Vuga: Designing incompleteness

.
Boštjan Vuga: “We test constantly. We like to test ideas that we discarded a decade ago, believing they will not work. This drives us and enables us to produce diverse work: we don’t have a particular style and this is our advantage. Our style is the ‘absence of style’. This makes our projects recognisable.”
