'The Mountain' by Tom Kühne

The Berlin based designer Tom Kühne is known for his narrative and fraught with meaning objects. With his newest works he again created dwelling objects that move away from the established prospect.

The massive ‘Mountain’ made from solid wood plays with our associations and perception this scenic topos evokes – Tom Kühne places it with all its monumental sublimeness as an archaic symbol into our daily ambience and uses the solid compound to create a new spatial structure.

‘Beddo’ by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm (DK)

'Beddo' by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm

This minimalst sofa was designed by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm and is currently displayed at the exhibition ‘Designers Investigating’ in Øksnehallen in Copenhagen. ‘Beddo’ – Japanese for ‘bed’ – is composed of a thin upholstered plane in floor height and a wooden structure for the removable backrest. It was not the young Danish designer’s intention to create a comfy and soft sofa, but rather a simple resting place, which still requires some physical activity – since the lack of corporal motion is one reason for an increasing number of people with back- and joint pain.

'Valet' by Anna Blattert/Postfossil

Postfossil is more than a label under which objects are created. ‘Post-Fossil’ is how the Swiss designers collective see the world after fossil energy sources are completely exhausted. With their silent yet meaningful pieces they re-interpret traditional processing and apply them to their aesthetically and qualitatively sustainable products. One of my favourites is the puristic and elegantly swung clothes-stand ‘Valet’ by the Zurich based designer Anna Blattert. You can just imagine it standing gentlemanly next to your bed keeping your clothes free from creases until the next morning.


“The traditional method of steam bending takes advantage of the characteristics of the solid wood and does not require any additives. The simple folding system allows quick setup and quick storing. The airing out of garments prevents having to wash them excessively and helps to save energy.” the designer explains.

About Postfossil:

“What is the aim of the young designers? The answer is simple: they want to raise awareness. Not with a megaphone, but rather with quiet, subtle remarks artfully incorporated into their objects. POSTFOSSIL’s intention is not to preach, only to ask questions and to look for answers in as public a way as possible, over and over again, in order to broaden design’s horizon and for it to fulfil its sustainable role. They want to encourage responsible interaction with resources and to encourage change on our part before the postfossil age changes us.”

'Reflect' chair and ottoman by Thomas Walde/Postfossil

“‘Reflect chair’, through its form, aims to encourage reflection and meditation which in this day and age is often suppressed by other activities. The reduction to structure and naked realisation activate the user and its thoughts. The size and high armrests inspired by Corbusier’s LC2 typologically bring to mind an easy chair, however, it does not allow for much more than to sit down in it, meditate or open a book. The element in front of it corresponds to an ottoman which can also be used as repository or as a stool.”

Postfossil collection 2010

The next station for the new Postfossil collection will be the DMY Festival in Berlin at the spectacular location of Tempelhof, Berlin’s former city airport.

'Stellvetrtreter' by Stephan Schulz

'Stellvetrtreter' by Stephan Schulz

The German manufacturer recently presented this slightly ironic clothes stand by Stephan Schulz.

The Stellvertreter (in engl.: the representative) stands its ground. While the 1. Stellvertreter puts its best foot forward with a big man’s footprint, the second 2. Stellvertreter has an additional children’s footprint and a shoe brush. Either way, these two object wardrobes always give you a warm welcome.
