...Help by Rupert Kopp for L&Z Established in 2011 by Daniel Lorch & Aidin Zimmermann Berlin based manufacturer L&Z quickly established a strong reputation for their self confident approach to design, and for ploughing their own furrow through the detritus of lifestyle tat which others peddle as design... At Orgatec 2016 L&Z rectified that and, in effect, presented all those things that were so obviously missing from their portfolio: a chair system - Glyph by Geckeler Michels; a side table - Beam by Daniel Lorch; shelving - Shadow Play by RelvãoKellermann; desk top accessories - Unit by Mark Braun; a lamp - Help by Rupert Kopp And all that in the uncomplicated, untroubled manner, and with a focus on design, that defines the brand...
Rupert Kopp was born in the German town of Horb am Neckar and studied jewellery design at the Fachhochschule Pforzheim. In the basement of the school's sculpture department Kopp discovered a welding machine, which led him to develop his Diploma project as mobile, interactive light objects. After completing his studies, the designer began to create furniture and other objects for fairs and projects for companies. In 1998, he founded an office in Berlin, and since then, he has worked for renowned companies such as Zumtobel and Adidas as interior designer and product designer; however, his passion for furniture and lighting has remained and he has realised cooperations with the likes of Nimbus or Nils Holger Moormann. Rupert Kopp's works have received numerous awards and are part of many international design collections.
