Design student Meike Heller at the Stilwerk (Hamburg, December 2008)
2009 starts with sending my congrats to Meike Heller, design student at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg). Last December, she received the first prize at the Stilwerk Design Award 2008 (incl. an enjoyable money prize of 2.500 Eur!)
Meike’s lighting concept Lunar Arc is one of the promising results of the Material + Spiel (2007) design course developed and coordinated by Prof. Marion Ullrich and myself – and we are more than proud to see Meike’s work recognized by Hamburg’s design scene.
The jury enjoyed the Lunar Arc light for its sculptural appearance and unique play of light. Material Stories loves the light for bringing an old/known material in an new/unknown context – and for being a great eye opener for the materials industry in discovering new application ideas.
