3. Form follows function.
Without forgetting the aesthetic level, it is the unit of design, material and function.
A good design doesn´t live by a good idea alone. It requires knowledge, experience and understanding. An understanding for how materials react and harmonize with each other. How durable they are. How they have to be handled and processed.
But also features like improvisation, form-fanaticism, skill, unbending will and courage are important parameters for a perfect design. Boundaries are tested, materials challenged in order to fulfill the form. The germanmade. designs transport the language of forms of the devices to be protected and support their function.
The design is inseparably connected to the material.
Why wood? Why leather? Why woven felt? Why metal? Why rubber?
Because it is genuine, authentic and it has a history... and because it still offers enough space for an own history.
germanmade. has spent a lot of time to chose the right materials. Materials with which we associate naturalness, warmth and softness but at the same time also structure, clarity and sturdiness.
A wood which is taken from sustainable forestry. A leather that really feels like one. A woven felt which offers both, a hardware as well as philanthropic characteristics. A metal being free of chromium which is suitable for tongues of children. A natural rubber which is recyclable to 100% but which lasts and lasts and lasts.
“Hands“ play an important role in germanmade.´s cosmos. The designs are still drawn by hand. Hand-picked and hand-caressing materials are used. These are significantly processed by hand. In medium-sized craft enterprises in Germany. germanmade. builds on sustainability. Direct paths and short processes save time, money and resources. The hand-picked materials and the direct communication with the customer create unique prints in an extraordinary quality and a long enjoyment of the product. The cooperation with German craft enterprises secures workplaces in professions which are threatened by technological progress.
