Iconic Award 2020

Winners of the Iconic Award 2020: The German Design Council has selected Kati Meyer-Brühl’s sofas and armchairs bongo bay and the highback armchair amandine for the prize.

bongo bay is reminiscent of sculptures, rounded rocks or abstract painting. With all corners and edges seeming to have been worn smooth by water flowing over them, the design shows softly flowing yet powerful outlines. amandine combines playful touches of the Empire style and Art Nouveau with an unmistakably transparent, modern, even humorous, design that captures the eye and raises the armchair above any attempt at categorisation.
