With a focus on American red oak, hard and soft maple and cherry, AHEC has teamed up with 9 young designers to create an object that reflects their approach towards “slow design for fast change”. The result is an exercise in how young voices of design re-think their profession today, when factoring in the aspects of sustainability, longevity and a focus on quality. Working together with experienced design professionals Hanne Willmann, Sebastian Herkner and Garth Roberts, the designers will present their final pieces at Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin from November 26th 2021 to 15th May 2022.
The final pieces include a wide range of objects from bowls to chairs, benches to shelving systems as well as tables and modular furniture elements. Produced by German workshop Holzfreude, the finished objects symbolize the value of perfect craftsmanship as well as present a selection of the best young voices of design in a unique historical context.
