Nils Holger Moormann
“If there’s one thing where I’m really obstinate, it’s flexibility”
Since 1982 the self-taught Nils Holger Moormann, as one of the protagonists of the “New German Design” school, has been producing and selling products from young, unknown designers. Following the main principles of simplicity, intelligence and innovation, the items are generally characterised by innovative characteristics, precise detailed solutions and simple form.
Since 1992, Moormann and his company have been ensconced in the idyllic landscape of Aschau im Chiemgau in upper. Situated in the midst of the, the company tries to have everything manufactured by firms located nearby. At time, it‘s possible to manage this aim by 98 %.
As a large proportion of the product components are manufactured by external suppliers, the company retains a high degree of flexibility and a large breadth of items manufactured. The regional structures, which have developed over a long period of time, paired with international contacts, have a decisive influence on the company philosophy. For example, the seeming disadvantage of a lack of infrastructure is compensated for by conscious definition of what the company stands for by the place where it is located. From an unconventional one-man firm, an enterprise has developed which employs a team of 20 employees, who leave Nils Holger Moormann time to be active as an international juror and lecturer.
The furniture collection, of which many individual items have been awarded international design prizes, is constantly being extended, with new furniture and product lines being added all the time.
