Three “Special Mentions” for Kati Meyer-Brühl
Kati Meyer-Brühl’s designs attitude, muskat and poem have gained “Special Mentions” at the German Design Council’s German Design Awards 2017. Another award-winning range was the magnat sofas and armchairs, designed by brühl around 25 years ago in collaboration with the Danish designer Erik Magnussen.
The luxuriously comfortable sofa attitude is particularly versatile, thanks to fully lowerable and pivotable armrests and mounts for padded headrests that disappear inside the sofa’s backrest. The muskat sofas and armchairs have a natural, minimalist charm, and their clear-cut design makes them easy to combine with other pieces. The solid wood frame comes in a choice of seven colour shades. The armchair poem reflects the concept of a wingback armchair but intentionally breaks with the traditional characteristics of its design. poem rests on a swivel base with an integrated tilting mechanism, rather than on feet; the wings are only subtly indicated, and the design of the armrests is totally innovative – or they are even left out altogether.
The appeal of the magnat range lies in the extreme simplicity and clarity that were designer Erik Magnussen’s signature style. The backrests, which curve slightly outwards, and the graceful outlines nevertheless look lively and also ensure that the users enjoy plenty of freedom to move. magnat comes with exclusive leather covers.
