„Gutes Design braucht Luft zum Atmen.“
Anja Bachmann is a product und furniture designer from Düsseldorf, Germany. Following her apprenticeship as a goldsmith, she studied at Düsseldorf University of Applied Arts and graduated 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Art and Design.
In her work, she explores material, form and space to find a balance between functionality and aesthetics. A generous amount of clear space is an important component of her design. It is needed to create detachment, it evokes clarity and leaves space for the product to breath.
My work is a constant exploration of the basic geometry, the combinations of forms, the visual and haptic materials and the tension created by the collision of different materials.
Metal and its contrary qualities have always fascinated me. And so it is in most of my work again.
Working with wood was a natural choice for me, because wood is warm, beautiful and pleasant to the touch. I think the texture of the material is especially important for a home-based product where parts are handled much of the design.
I am also interested in the merging (intermeshing) of architecture and design.
For me, the common denominator lies in the light, both in architecture and in design. Light surrounds everything. Light influences our understanding of materials, shapes and spaces, which relates each design to its environment. Thus, there is a mutual enrichment of space and object.
