Maigrau

As a young designer, it is not easy to make a name for yourself in the highly competitive design industry and to realise your designs with established manufacturers. The two product designers Nik Back and Alexander Stamminger therefore decided in 2007 to found their own label Maigrau: a daring step, yet one which quickly paid off. Based in Schwäbisch Hall in Southern Germany, Maigrau's portfolio was initially based exclusively around Nik and Alexanders's designs, works such as the side table Turn or the three-legged floor lamp Luca Stand, but now includes co-operations with external designers. The orientation of the young label is primarily sustainable, which is why natural materials such as wood, metal, and textiles are mainly processed; in addition, the production of Maigrau products is carried out exclusively in Germany in cooperation with established and progressive craftsmen, thus ensuring high-quality furniture made to last. Formally and structurally. In terms of style, the furniture of Maigrau is characterized by its lightness and freshness, and the manner in which it brings a fresh touch to familiar objects. The two company owners are primarily interested in offering high quality furniture featuring sustainable, timeless elegance.

The Luca Stand lamp, as with the Maigrau side table, has a touch of mid-century modern


smow sells exclusively originals from licensed manufacturers and is an official Maigrau trading partner.
