German Design Council honours Kati Meyer-Brühl with five nominations
These most recent nominations increase the total number of Kati’s design awards to 86.
An addition nomination was given to the magnat range by Danish designer Erik Magnussen, re-introduced by brühl in 2015.
The urban, extremely comfortable attitude sofa, the tree trunk-based hammersvik occasional table, the ethereal les copains harp wickerwork chair, the linear and sustainable muskat armchair and the innovative poem armchair and stool are exemplary for Kati Meyer-Brühl’s particularly wide-ranging scope in design that ranges from naturalness (hammersvik) to minimalist clarity (muskat, les copains harp) and innovative shapes that reflect on traditional visual concepts (attitude, poem).
Erik Magnussen’s (1940-2014) magnat sofas and armchairs, designed about 20 years ago in collaboration with brühl, are characterised by a marked simplicity and elegance of form and are of particularly lasting value due to their premium-quality leather covers.
All nominated pieces feature high adaptability, versatility of use, recognisable design language and high-quality workmanship. They have been produced with utmost consideration of the requirements of sustainability and eco-friendliness and are particularly long-lived.
Kati Meyer-Brühl has been brühl’s Creative Director since 2004 and is among Europe’s most successful designers. In her work, she combines a light, independent and clear design language with the maximum level of quality, sustainability and environmental friendliness. She 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.
