Why does the architect Meinhard von Gerkan design furniture? Because obviously there are no other pieces of furniture available on the market that could be used instead. The furniture is necessary to advance the dream of the architect of the perfect design combining house and furnishings, as well as exterior and interior. The book provides an insight into the aesthetics of the architect – consisting of clear, mainly geometrical shapes, finished with high-quality materials and a strongly sensuous component, they give evidence to a design philosophy that resists the market of quick wear and tear and counters it with (multi) functional and clearly-structured, simple, and enduring design objects.
