Interior Innovation Award for deep space and chess
Kati Meyer-Brühl has been awarded the Interior Innovation Award – Winner 2014 label for her designs deep space and chess. The German Design Council presents this award in cooperation with conceptual partner imm cologne to outstandingly designed furniture.
The cuboid chess seating elements, designed in 2013, are distinguished by their modular design and carefully matched dimensions. They can be combined and extended in many different ways, and can be used to create individual seating concepts. The range not only includes armchair modules but also, for example, an ottoman, a recamier and a divan, which are also perfect on their own as accent pieces. chess comes with separately removable seat and rest element covers; this not only allows different covers to be combined with each other but also considerably increases the furniture’s lifespan.
The deep space sofas and armchairs, which will be shown for the first time at the imm cologne 2014 furniture fair, are amongst Kati Meyer-Brühl’s latest designs. Their innovative, slightly tapered silhouette, curved in the armrest area, combines emotional appeal with exceptional comfort and a wide range of options: the backrests can be adjusted to a fully upright position, and the seats can be pulled out by 25 centimetres. The sofa is also available with an integrated storage table – including secret compartment and removable tray. The designs come in a wide choice of covers and woods.
For example, both designs are available covered in particularly sustainable Oliva leather, which has been tanned using only pure olive leaf extracts.
Kati Meyer-Brühl has won numerous national and international awards for her designs. She is a graduate of the Central Saint Martins University of Arts & Design in London and the Parsons School of Design in New York.
