Hanne Willmann can not be assigned to any particular category as a designer, her work and choice of materials are diverse: for example, she developed a vase made of glass and concrete for the Scandinavian design label Menu, a showcase made of steel and glass for the Bauhaus manufacturer Tecta and a display case made of steel and glass for Schönbuch. However, her designs all have one thing in common: clear shapes, thoughtful details and a simple perfection. Scandinavian cosiness meets the sobriety of Bauhaus, whose design has always fascinated Willmann. But also traditional Mexican craftsmanship flows into her creations. After studying design in Berlin and Barcelona, Hanne Willmann initially worked for Autoban in Istanbul and Werner Aisslinger in Berlin until she opened her own studio there. Since then, she has received numerous awards for her creations, including the German Design Award and the Young Icon Award. At just 27, Willmann accepted a teaching assignment at the University of the Arts in Berlin - the largest art school in Europe. Since 2018 she is the creative director of the furniture manufacturer Interlübke and decides as one of the jury members of the German Design Award.
