Designs by Kati Meyer-Brühl will be presented at the international design exhibition ‘Time – Space – Existence’ in the context of the upcoming Venice Biennale of Architecture 2016
The design exhibition, like the Biennale itself, will be held from 28 May to 27 November 2016. It is organised by the Global Art Affairs Foundation based in the Dutch city of Leiden and in Venice. The foundation, an official partner of the Biennale, has chosen Kati Meyer-Brühl to participate in the exhibition.
The event is staged in collaboration with the European Cultural centre at Venice and will be shown at three centrally located palazzi on Canal Grande. Kati Meyer-Brühl’s designs will be presented at Palazzo Michiel not far from the Rialto Bridge.
Kati Meyer-Brühl shows her designs mosspink, les copains harp, grace and hammersvik. The mosspink sofa, a design inspired by nature, has come to be seen as a landmark project that earned Kati Meyer-Brühl numerous international design prizes. The les copains harp chair combines a galvanised frame with a seat and backrest made from fine stainless steel wire. Despite its formal reduction, the chair develops a strong presence and has an almost ethereal appearance.
The grace armchair is an equally graceful and transparent seating object with a filigree frame that holds the seat and backrest. The hammersvik occasional table is based on a massive beech tree slice that has only been cautiously worked on in the design process to allow it to develop its natural appeal as far as possible All pieces are characterised by environmental-friendly production processes, clarity and transparency of design, sustainable materials and a particularly long product life-span.
Kati Meyer-Brühl lives in Berlin. She studied at Dessau, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, London and New York and holds a Master’s degree in industrial design from the Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London and a Master’s in fine arts from Parsons, The New School for Design in New York. She has been brühl’s Creative Director since 2004 and ranks amongst the most successful design talents in Europe. In her work, she combines a light, independent and clear design language with the maximum level of quality, sustainability and environmental friendliness.
