The masters of German interior design
Best of German Interior Design introduces the reader to the 50 most renowned German designers and 50 leading German producers of home interior products. It portrays a scene that, in its self-perception, tends to fall “below the radar.” Around the world, by contrast, German creators and manufacturers enjoy an excellent reputation. German furniture, kitchens, and faucets now compete with the best European products, winning consumers over with original ideas as well as superior workmanship. Major names and brands not only represent a significant industry, they also stand for the highest aesthetic standards in home design and lifestyle. This opulently illustrated book presents numerous iconic products that demonstrate the true quality of interior design “Made in Germany.” Essays by well-known writers bring key topics and standpoints in contemporary design discourse into focus and enhance the discussion of cutting-edge design by illuminating its cultural and historical contexts.
With contributions by Dr. Andreas Görgen (Federal Foreign Office, Head of the Department of Culture and Communications), Birgitta Homburger (Creative Director of Studio Lambl/Homburger), Prof. Dr. Dirk Boll (President Christie’s Europe & UK, Middle East, Russia & India), and others.
