Nils Holger Moormann

Born in Stuttgart in 1953, Nils Holger Moormann lives and works today in the Bavarian town of Aschau in Chiemgau. After giving up his law studies, Moormann began in 1982 with the production and distribution of furniture. The Gespanntes Regal shelf by Wolfgang Laubersheimer proved a quick success and in 1984 Moormann founded his company in Aschau, which now employs some 20 people. At the end of the 1990s, he converted an historic riding centre into a design workshop and office complex. In addition to producing his own designs Nils Holger Moormann has cooperated with numerous international designers including, and amongst many others, Tom Fischer, Takashi Sato and Katharina Ploog. An important part of the Moormann philosophy is helping young talents take their first steps as a designer by maturing and producing their products. For this, quality and quantity always count for him: rarely more than two new products are added to the product range each year, in order not to make the company too big and to ensure its flexibility. Sales and manufacturing of its furniture is exclusively handled with regional companies. This brings Moormann several advantages: the region is economically strengthened, the quality of manufacturing process and materials can be better ensured, and the environment is spared by short transport routes. The philosophy of Moormann, combined with the simple but intelligent way in which his furniture looks, make the designer so extraordinary.
