Design: Andreas Calliess
core is a uniquely designed bench made of a single, more than 100 years old oak tree and captivates the beholder by its minimalist design language. The designer Andreas Calließ aimed at a perfect symbiosis of functionality and aesthetics, which targets a multifunctional nature of the design object. Versatile areas of contemplation or communication can be created by combining of a number of core benches. You can achieve this simply by shifting and moving their back rests. A freely adjustable head rest meets the needs of users of virtually any height. The detachable back element makes the transformation into a table extremely simple. Traditional craftsmanship in the shape of a dovetail joint guarantees a high degree of aesthetics and quality. core is one of the nominees for the German Design Award 2014.
Since 2001, Andreas Calließ has been working as a freelance artist. His works show that reductive elegance that appears to us as the essence of contemporary luxury.
With the “core” bench, Calließ transfers this philosophy to a piece of furniture, whose moveable backrest surprises with countless seating positions.
