German Design Award Nominee 2022
This customised version of my "400 Year Stool" featured as my submission to the German Design Council for the prestigious German Design Award 2022 and I am delighted to have received a Nomination for Excellent Product Design.
"Commissioned by Swiss Krono as a certified limited edition of thirty pieces, The Brandenburg Hocker is one evolution from a collection of six individual stools designed and made by Eva Mechler. The customer brief demanded locally sourced skills and materials incorporating ecologically sound production method. The main challenges addressed were in securing German oak from the local area, creating unique templates for wood carving, and hand printing the Swiss Krono logo."
