Since more than 20 years Thomas Merkel is committed to this brand with his clear design. His wide experience is based on the collaboration with well-known designers and the realization of ideas into marketable products. His furniture for sdr+ and S+ are systems which can be individualized for the reason to integrate into the environment. They don’t want to dominate but to fit.
His work is quiet, balanced and appears always as a matter of course without asking questions. All his drafts show his vision of design: hence the table program M04 is a very ambitious creative and technical work of high aesthetically appeal.
For him, design is more than only an idea. The detail and the realization are the determining differences in the quality of the completed product and the standards he sets himself every day. His work is thought-out, the details are worked out, changed, rejected and then achieved in a new way. Not different at any cost but always better in details.
Until today his work is accompanied by numerous awards: Nomination for the Designpreis der BRD, Design Deutschland selected, Red dot award product design, if product design award, Designpreis für Dreidimensionalität etc.
