hammersvik by Kati Meyer-Brühl wins Green Good Design Award 2017
The organic occasional table hammersvik has won Kati Meyer-Brühl a Green Good Design Award for exemplary sustainable and environmentally compatible design. It is awarded by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.
hammersvik is an oasis of calm yet also – thanks to its tree rings and natural shape – a very decorative element. It evokes nature and its cycles, and goes well with rural as well as urban environments, where it adds new aspects to existing interiors as an “ambassador for nature”.
It is also manufactured in an extremely eco-friendly way: Massive beech tree trunks, with the characteristic cracks that result from the drying process, are cut into slices, debarked, planed and sanded, then whitewashed. The wood used is always sourced from certified, sustainably managed forests. The cracks may widen as time goes by.
Kati Meyer-Brühl is brühl’s Creative Director. She has won more than 90 national and international awards for her furniture designs. In her work, she combines a light handed, distinctive design language that resonates internationally with maximum quality, sustainability and environmental compatibility.
