Winner of the London Creative Competition 2020: Felix Schwake and his Purist Functional Art
Acclaimed artist and designer Felix Schwake has claimed the prestigious London Creative Competition 2020 as a finalist. With his unique and innovative MMXX II desk, he has received special recognition in the world of functional art.
The Philosophy Behind the MMXX II Desk
The MMXX II desk embodies Schwake's philosophy that "architecture must be the background for life". This piece of furniture extends simple geometry with functions for "use", and offers a place to work out fleeting ideas without distraction. To promote clarity and concentration, everyday work utensils, documents, and cables are hidden inside the table and remain easily accessible under the extendable writing surface.
Purist Functional Art by Felix Schwake
Schwake's approach to functional art is purist and aims to create a calm and focused work environment. The background of the empty table surface gives the idea to be worked out an unusual amount of attention, thereby promoting creative work. This conscious reduction and clear lines are characteristic of his work and make his designs unmistakable.
