With deceptively simple forms and stark contrasts using solid wood and white surfaces, Jannis Ellenberger’s work is an exception from that of many other German designers, earning him the “if product design award” for his free-standing sink, which stands at the centre of his own delightful and inimitable private space collection. Using his accumulated knowledge to create contemporary classics, Bremen-based Ellenbergerdesign is behind some of the mist distinctive and meaningful products within Europe as he strives to make products in the studio in which form and function compose a harmonious whole.
