German Design Award 2012 Nominee
Felix Schwake: Purist Functional Art and German Design Award 2012
A Coveted Nomination
In 2012, Felix Schwake was nominated for the prestigious German Design Award. An accolade that represents the pinnacle of German design and only acknowledges outstanding designers for their innovative contributions to design. Schwake was nominated for his masterfully designed work, the K-1 desk.
The K-1 Desk: A Masterpiece of Minimalist Design
The K-1 is no ordinary desk. It exemplifies the principle of functional art and impressively combines minimalist design and innovative technology. On the outside simple, the desk hides four extendable function trolleys that can each hold multimedia.
Storage Space and Accessibility in Perfect Harmony
In addition to storage space for the computer, the K-1 offers numerous possibilities for storing office material lying on the desk top in everyday office life. The innovative aspect of this concept is that this office material has not been rationalised away, but remains accessible at all times. The table creates a tidy workplace without having to sacrifice functionality.
The Vision of Felix Schwake: Purist Functional Art
Felix Schwake masterfully manages to merge art and function. His works, such as the K-1 desk, are characterised by their purist design and innovative functionality. They transform everyday objects into works of art and enrich the space with their aesthetic presence. A philosophy that earned him a nomination for the highest German design award.
