In our online furniture club minimum.club, we offer design furniture at reduced prices. We have been asked repeatedly whether these are actually originals – because, surely, this is too good to be true? Pseudo-Eames chairs with a clacking connection between the shell and the frame, cantilever chairs that stops swaying after a few weeks, a cacophony of screeches and squeaks, varnish that flakes off – you will not find errors of these proportions in our products. The annoyances that can arise aft

In the foyer of the hotel Mauritzhof in Münster, particularly beautiful custom-made versions of the Gubi Beetle Chair invite you to linger – the velvet you’ll find there is one of the many hundreds of upholstery options for the chair. The Beetle Chairs by the Italian-Danish design duo GamFratesi impress with their spirited appeal to jovial 50s forms. They have their name for a reason: ironic details such as kinks in the chair legs and the shape of the seat shell and backrest are reminiscent of the hind legs and the bod
Richard Lampert founded his Stuttgart-based business in 1993 with the aim of industrially manufacturing furniture and other objects of utility that join together craftsmanship-like quality, aspirational design and sustainability. From the classics by the designers Egon Eiermann and Herbert Hirche to modern, award-winning design icons and innovative – mostly unconventional – works by international designers, the collection’s unifying principle is “as little as possible, as much as necessary.“ But Richard Lampert defies
Living concepts for Berlin after 1945. Exhibition from February 9th to June 26th 2017 in the Berlin Werkbund Archive – Museum of Things. The question of how to create new living space was a central concern in post-1945 Berlin – there was a dramatic demand for housing, furniture and everyday objects across sectors.The 'Werkbund' regarded the need for reconstruction as an opportunity to implement the concepts of New Building and the New Apartment developed in the 1920s. Lilly Reich, Werkbund protagonist an

When we consult our customers on sofas and armchairs in the Berlin Stilwerk, the upholstery plays a central role. The following interview was conducted by Frederick Winkler of textilwirtschaft.de with Franziska Jaehnz. What role do textiles play in your customers' homes? The fabrics that we come into contact with when we are sitting, lying or walking around at home are very present in our living spaces and therefore important in the design of one's own 'nest'. Our customers have family, often including s
minimum presents: Ilmari Tapiovaara When it comes to architecture and design from Finland, most people think of Alvar Aalto. But the woodlands between Sweden and Russia have brought forth a whole series of important designers. Like Ilmari Tapiovaara, whose name is probably known only to some – even though he remains the only designer to win six gold medals at the Milan Triennial. Tapiovaara made a name for himself not only with furniture designs, but also in the field of graphics, photography, interior design and architecture. He was born in 1914 in the Finnish industrial city of Tampere and studied art, industrial design and interior design in Helsinki. He then worked with Le Corbusier in Paris, became the artistic director at a furniture factory in Lahti and worked as a freelance designer. As guest professor at the renowned Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, he also served as an educator. It was in this setting that he entered into a lively excha
From Woodland to Greenhouse: Scandinavian Design Is an Export Hit The motto is sustainability – to be discussed in the context of design products, their life cycle, long-lasting materials and manufacturing processes. In addition to the Stockholm Design & Architecture Talks, initiatives like 'Greenhouse' and 'Welcome to Woodland' are dedicated to these matters. Guest of Honour: Jaime Hayon This year's guest of honour, Jaime Hayon, is known for his vivacious, playful creations. This time, he presents his ideas for the li
Special Trend Exhibition 2017/18: Contrasts Lotta Agaton curated an exhibition on the contrast of materials and decorative styles at the Stockholm Design Week from 07.-11. February 2017. With surprising combinations of materials, patterns, shapes and colours, the furniture presentation fulfils its motto 'contrasts' in more than one sense. A visible trend within the furniture and lighting industry is that the boundary between apartments and public areas is dissolving. This can be seen in the manufacturers' product range
Following the success of the first Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection, which was released at the beginning of 2014, the range was extended by three new textile designs – Noise, Masai and Sirocco – and a matching assortment of cushions and throws. Anders Byriel, business executive of Kvadrat: “I am amazed by Raf’s never-ending creative vision that allowed him to add further dimension to an already expansive collection. The new designs add complexity and even more haptically interesting dimensions to the collec
