Paris Design Award 2020
Felix Schwake has won the Paris Design Award 2020. In addition, the "FELIX SCHWAKE DESK MMXX II" was awarded the "Grand Prix Winner - Product of the Year" for the best product design of 2020.
The desk MMXX II enables you to focus on fleeting ideas without distraction.
The idea behind Schwake’s philosophy “Architecture has to be the background for life” is to extend a simple geometry with a function for “use”.
Utensils, documents and cables required for everyday work at a table are hidden inside the table to promote clarity and concentration and remain easily accessible under the pull-out writing surface. On the background of the empty table surface, the idea to be worked out receives an unusually huge amount of attention. Thanks to the innovative design, Felix Schwake won the Paris Design Award 2020 and also the overall Product Design of the Year category with this object. Winners in other categories include world-famous artists such as Ai Weiwei, who won the Graphic Design of the Year Award category.
