DER VORSTAND: A New Space for New Times

Posted by Stillfried Wien on

When the professional slips into the private sphere, then a VORSTAND – an executive board – is needed to maintain order at home. It creates space when you need it, frees up space where you need it. Otherwise, it retreats elegantly into the background. Closed, the stature of a slender wall cabinet, DER VORSTAND unfolds with a single pull into a multifunctional think tank. The fold-out ceiling creates a sense of space, it affords light and connects the essentials: the back wall mounted on wheels with its magnetic exterior and the secretary at the centre. In keeping with the trusted Moormann ordering principle, everything has its place: from your pen to the books and the binders. Devices are charged; cables are hidden. A curtain can be added to the side, and the illumination the ceiling and work space adjusted to your personal preferences – for maximum atmosphere on minimum surface area. It’s about thinking big, outside the box.

Surfaces and materials are reduced to the basics: solid ash wood and light beige linoleum where hands and eyes rest or work in concentration; black surfaces and quiet restraint where nothing should distract you. Precise details for storing, cabling, and locking the fold-out mechanism convey integrity and guarantee self-assured performance on the executive level.

Austrian furniture label One For Hundred produces solid wood furniture and plants 100 trees for every item sold. Their designs are fresh interpretations of timeless typologies. The One For Hundred collection is highly customizable, from dimension to wood finish and color. The wood used comes from their own forest in the north of Vienna - "from tree to table" - the entire process remains in their hands.
Behind One For Hundred are industrial designer Anna and Karl Philipp Prinzhorn, who manages the forest in the seventh generation. Together they decided to develop a furniture company that builds up the resources it uses.

The Max Bill Collection

Posted by Stillfried Wien on


Max Bill was born in 1908 in Winterthur, Switzerland. After graduating from the Zurich School of Applied Arts, in 1928, he started his studies at the Bauhaus in Dessau, where, among others, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky were his teachers.
The Kreuzzargenstuhl chair was designed in 1952 and shows Bill’s skills as a product designer. The cross-frame leg construction, invented by Bill, supports the seat in the center and gives the chair the greatest possible structural stability. In terms of form, the contrast between the slim seat and the sturdy frame accentuates the chair’s technical construction, giving it a powerful and sculptural expression.

LOEHR is a Berlin-based design studio founded by the three brothers David, Leon, and Julian Löhr. Their designs are influenced by architectural categories, constructive methods, and the functional formal language of modernism. The dissolution of typologies, new views on spaces for living and working, as well as aesthetically contemporary materiality and expression are at the core of the design ethos of LOEHR.
