Andreas Berlin

The traditional design questions are his point of departure, but he distinguishes himself by choosing innovative solutions. Berlin’s designs are powerful, emotional and balanced. But their simplicity lends them a high utility value without superfluous pretences. Andreas Berlin studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden, where he later also taught. In the meantime, he lives and works in Berlin. ‘I wanted to design a sofa where you can also sit on the back. So it had to be really flat, but also adjustable. The round shape is a logical consequence of that, which I then elaborated on.’
